Where can we see your work?
On either of my parents’ facebooks:
Do you have work for sale?
Yes. I will be selling it at Minot Welding which is located in downtown Minot: 400 4th Avenue Northeast. I will also be starting to accept commissions, you can send them to my email, email@example.com.
In what media do you work?
My normal media that I like to work in is either pencils (graphite and colored) or acrylic painting.
How would you describe your style?
I like to describe my style of art as very realistic and detailed because most of my artwork tends to be in the realism section.
Who would you say have been influences on your work?
I am influenced by many people. My dad gives me a great deal of inspiration considering he is an artist too, but of different sorts. I also want to give credit to God for giving me this amazing gift of being able to draw and paint and bring these pieces of art to life through Him. I am also influenced by many of other artists such as Caitlin Hackett and Camillia d’Errico.
Are there particular themes you like to explore in your work?
I like to discover new and different types of themes as I am inspired. I mainly like wildlife, animals, sometimes portraits, or inanimate objects that I find interesting.
What do you most enjoy about the creative process?
My favorite part about the process is all of the shading and detailing I put into it.
Tell us a little about yourself.
I am 16 years old, and I consider myself a self-taught artist. I’ve been drawing ever since I can remember. I am currently a junior and I go to Our Redeemer’s Christian School, although it is sad that they don’t offer any art programs. I have recently been considering going to an art college, and every piece I sell, I am going to put it away to save for college. I always like learning new drawing tips and talking to other people who have an interest in art.
