My love of color and texture has been evident since I was very young. At 11 years old, I was drawing portraits in pastels and throughout college made extra money selling 'boyfriend portraits' to other students (oh my, love at that age!). Now I get great satisfaction experimenting with color, trying out new texture tools (who knew you could use garden tools?), and spending hours with Photoshop plug-ins just to see 'what' they do. I use many different media today, though - oils, acrylics, pastels, charcoal, mixed media, digital art, photography - you get the idea. Here at FAA, I'm happy to share the fruits of my labor with you. Take a look around. If you enjoy a piece enough to make a comment, that would be great. If you see something you think you could live with and want to give it a home, I'll be a happy camper. So browse, vote, 'like', or make a comment or two, but most importantly, enjoy!
