2016 was a very difficult year for me. In the midst of massive issues with mental illness, suicidal ideations, the loss of the cat I've had for nearly 20 years, and a whole slew of changes including 3 different jobs (finally found one I'm gonna keep without it giving me anxiety attacks!) and moving out, I've lost my love for creating. 
I have a very difficult time focusing enough to start artwork, let alone finish it. I have a pile of unfinished projects and no motivation to touch them. And I'm not satisfied with what I do manage to create. 

So my goal this year is simply to learn to love drawing and painting again. I can't say exactly what this will entail, or what the results will be. I'll be finishing a couple of commissions and a Christmas gift, but for the most part I'll be focusing on doing art I want to do. Hopefully I'll want to do something soon. 

I've been scribbling a bit but nothing much has come of it. But I'll keep trying! 

I hope you're all well.

Question watchers: I'm trying to figure out how to symbolize silence visually. How would you go about painting/drawing silence? I could definitely use some ideas!

I'm a 24 year old eccentric who's been drawing since I could hold a crayon. As a child I drew horses constantly, and little else. Occasionally there was a fairy or a princess.
When I was 13 I am unashamed to admit that Pirates of the Caribbean took over my life, or rather, Captain Sparrow. I began drawing pirates and as a result I had a fuel in me pushing me to improve.
I began paying more attention to faces and anatomy and slowly over the years I have improved, and I work to continue to do so. I am fascinated with the human body (I mean come on, its beautiful), and the equine form as well. (Because it's also breathtaking.)
I am primarily a traditional media sketcher, and a digital painter, but I also dabble in oils, acrylic, and watercolor, pastels. I'm fond of colored pencils and markers too. Oh, and I really like taking pictures. Yeah, I do a bit of everything really. It's truly more fun that way.
I'm still learning every day, but mostly I'm learning to focus on loving what I do. I am an artist, and I love it.

Aside from art, I adore horses. I have one called Tanzen, and he is the center of my life aside from my family. I have a Cat called Sugar who is one of my greatest blessings also.
And then Mo the rabbit, who is a joy to keep!
I love shoes (especially the really tall ones), pirates, movies, reading books, and most importantly, writing.
Someday you can read my books.

Thank you for reading and stay tuned for more artwork. I'm waking up artistically and it's glorious!
