About my art…
First, I’m always drawing pet caricatures. I started when I was booked to draw pet caricatures at my favorite pub’s pet-friendly event a couple of years ago. The event was a success, and they encouraged me to start an Etsy. I did, and continued to book pet caricature events throughout that holiday season. About year later, I quit my day job to make art full-time.
In 2017, I started a personal drawing challenge called the “30 Days of Fae”. Every year, on Beltane (May 1), I commit to drawing one magical character a day. Last year, the theme was “Houseplant Dragons”. Each dragon is based on a houseplant from my collection. This project was so much fun, I kept going, and even had some Houseplant Dragon commissions, where I drew someone else’s favorite plant.
This year, my 30 Days of Fae theme is “Crystal Unicorns”. These unicorns are inspired by my crystal collection. Since I’ve added “Daily YouTube Video” to the challenge, I actually started this project in 2019 so that I could post one video for every day of Crystal Unicorns this year.
