The first drawing memory I have is of the mountains of Honduras I did in color pencil when I was about 5 or 6. I vividly remember the array of greens and yellows that decorated my paper. I loved the land beneath my feet, sprouting out of the ground like magic beans and I still feel most at home outside within the trees.
2017 was a year full of new habits such as devoting more of my free time to big goals, like improving my writing skills, reading more, painting everyday whenever and surrounding myself with positive friends and artists that love making things.
Here’s a few pieces I finished during this busy 2017 year.
A new painting I recently completed. I did experiential-research for this, so I exposed myself to the type of environment I was trying to illustrate and spent a lot of time sitting and walking through nature and staring at trees. Some of my inspiration is below.
