I am just a thirty-something girl still trying to change her stars.
I started this little adventure last year after some encouraging words about a painting, a few requests from supportive friends, and of course some amazing colleagues who purchased my first calendar. This little hobby of mine is always evolving, and I am so thankful for each and every person who has offered their tips and support. Please let me know how I can improve, or if you have any ideas. Click around, or search an animal... because that is kind of where this has gone...
I mostly draw on my iPad in the Procreate App or on my laptop in the Adobe suite of programs. I am still learning, but am really happy with some of the new techniques I have discovered.
I paint as well, but those projects are a little more difficult to get going and find the space for. I sell reproductions of my works on print-on-demand products via Redbubble (shop: SkyRose2018), Society6 (shop: skyrose), and Etsy (shop: eeliseart). Maybe one day I will be able to figure out how to get it all over here... Most of the items here are fulfilled through Printify. Thank you for your support! Maybe one day I can do it all here!
During the COVID-lockdown I started drawing more... apparently I was really missing the beach because I drew a bunch of marine mammals. The posts got the attention of the Marine Mammal Care Center Los Angeles who then asked if I would like to create a design for their fundraiser. I coudn't believe it was real! The fundraiser was a lot of fun, a few shirts were sold, and now I know a little bit more about this amazing organization. So, this year my calendar is going to be a fundraiser for them. I will be donating a minimum of $5 for each one sold. I am so excited to get to help them save seals and sea lions along Los Angeles beaches. Thank you for your help as well!
