I am a self-taught artist. While living in Iowa, creating hyper-realistic animal artwork. For as long as I can remember, I would draw animals and cartoon characters, which both my grandmothers used to hang on their fridges. I checked out book after book from the library that taught you different drawing techniques. I taught myself to draw, although I credit my grandmother with my artistic talent. She was an artist herself and I always say that I inherited my talents from her.
Here are some of the drawings I made. My flamingo took me 42 hours to complete, the lynx took 32 hours to complete and my whitetail book took 63 hours to complete. You can see more of my work on social media (links are below).
