Maura Sketch by silenoswithaleopard
Maura Sketch
I finally moved my art portfolio over to a new host and new domain. There I'll also post my writing work. Maura is the lead character of a serial novel I've been writing.

Also, I have to say that you have a lot of polished work in your gallery for only twenty-three years old! I am the same age, so it's inspiring for me to see. Something to push me to work harder!

Haha that is so great- thankyou :) Honestly I never showed any talent in art in school. I dropped out of highschool at 15-16 to go to vocational school. I learned to build houses and then I went on to learn to be a marine mechanic but dropped out of school when my mother became sick and was dying.

Art came out of nowhere really :D I'd sketch with markers when I was a teenager but it wasn't until I was 18 that I really thought of it as a way to earn money. I left home after my mom died and got a ride to somewhere new. I ended up settling in a town that allowed artists to set up on the sidewalks for free and sell their work- that's when things really kicked off, (this was 4.5 years back).

Now it's become something I really love and find so challenging. I'd say the biggest leap in my growth as an artist was when I quit my full-time job w/o any sort of plan back in 2014, (Up until that point I was always so tired from work that I'd barely get any painting done). I'd make a living as a full-time artist or go broke.

I don't watch TV, play video-games, or stay on the computer for too long. I used to love doing these things. I do put aside time everyday to consume really good art but I'm careful to schedule and make to-do lists so that my day stays structured. Remove distractions, stay optimistic and stay focused, that's my advice ;) Oh and me having horrible stubbornness/tunnel-vision has definitely helped me improve.

Goodness! I just realized how much I've typed up. Okay, clearly I've been up too long, time for bed :sleepy: Forgive me please!!!

Love your gallery, it has a lot of personality. Question: did you go to art school?
