Hello all!

I know this is a little untimely post-holiday season, but I've been doing some serious reorganizing during my time off from classes, and I have come to the conclusion that I have to move some of my pieces on and out to bigger and better homes with people who will love them! :3

I've recently moved into a smaller place, and I unfortunately now lack a studio space and ergo a lot of storage. My bigger paintings are now becoming too cumbersome to deal with, so I'm inviting everyone in the community to check out my gallery and possibly seek some pieces to buy! (of course, at a significantly lower price than my usual rate since I'm desperate to get some of these out of my cramped place!!!)

Paintings (and some drawings if I can locate them in my mess) are open for purchase unless the artist statement otherwise says that the piece is in a private collection, which means somebody beat you to it!

Note me if you're interested in anything in particular.

You seem to have a very advanced grasp on painting. It says you are an art student, i am as well. May i ask where you attend school? I go to NHIA.

Thank you very much! I go to Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I'm a flatlander :) They have a great art program for a state school, and it worked for me since I'm getting a BA as well as a BFA. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work. What are you studying specifically? What are you interested in?

I am currently studding for my BFA in Illustration. During the last year i have realized that even though i like the creative aspect of the course, I really wish to pursue a degree in sculpture. I may finish my illustration degree here and move on to my masters in sculpture elsewhere. I would love to show you my work, unfortunately alot of the better stuff that i have produced in the last year is stowed away at my mother's house. I think i have some three dimensional work that i have lying around that i would love to post.

Very cool. Illustration is awesome. Unfortunately, it's not offered at SIU. It gets lumped in with Comm Design, and I'm not really up for programming websites. I'm getting my double for drawing and painting, and kudos to you: I took my required sculpture course this past semester and I thought I was going to die. There's one more left, but it's metals, glass, or ceramics, so it shouldn't be so bad. And I know the feeling; all of my current paintings were left in storage for the summer since I am stupid and decided painting on sheets of plywood was a good idea XD You should definitely post more :3 Any artists in particular driving your work at the moment?

Your gallery is amazing ~ It kind of reminds me of the style I try to aim for. I've been wanting to work a lot more on paintings, and I just recently bought a set of Oils but I have no idea where to start lol

Yeah, i only started using oil paint this passed year. It's super fun, but yeah, can be technically overwhelming if you've got no one to show you the basics. Glad you like! ^^
