New Art Piece: Freelance Work

As I had mentioned, I am currently offering to do freelance work.

As a little girl, I remember watching my cousins draw a horse and was absolutely mesmerized. Almost 2 decades later, and I have collected notebooks of doodles/ drawings that have yet to see the light.

I think as a little girl, and maybe even, now I instinctively identified as a creative without really knowing it.. This ‘ability’ of mine caught the eye of my grade school art teachers growing up. I recall one particular time when I doodled a bow on a piece of paper and left it on the dining table. Later that day my father brought it back to me and said that the electrician took notice of it and called it beautiful. I recall another time in my high school photography class when my classmates and I were critiquing each other’s photos, and my teacher was commenting on a series of photos I took. She noticed the composition and said that “I had an artistic eye”, and I didn’t really understand. Even then while I was very aware of my interest in art, I didn’t really how much I realized how big a part art played in my life until I approached my late teens/ earlier 20’s (hence the number of arts journals I collected throughout the years). It was when I had a talk with my father not too long ago about my love for art is when he said ” you must have gotten your artistic ability from your mom” as I showed him my drawings from long ago, “you’re an artist but you don’t know”. Don’t know why, but those words still ring in my head.. Anyhow, til this day calling myself an ‘artist’ doesn’t sit well with me.. only because I think that title is left up to the people to decide. Though I know there is much growth for me to make and learn from, I could not be any more excited.

Please check out my art page. Hope my work brings you as much joy as it brings me to create it.

Freelance: New Art Work

I’ve added a few pieces to my art portfolio.
Feel free to check them out here. Definitely have been getting my creative juices flowing again. Feelin’ a bit rusty, but it feels good to get my pen on paper again. Great way to alleviate the stress. I am recently learning how to draw calligraphy and experimenting with patterns/ shapes, which I hope for you to see more of.

Please feel free to message/ comment for freelance work.

much love,

Update: Freelancing

Just posted some new photos on my photography page.
Growing up and taking a few photography class, I’ve been told by my peers and teachers that I have a natural artistic eye for placement and composition. Didn’t quite understood what they meant by that. But as I look back on my work after time has passed, it puts me back at a place and time when I took the photograph or made a certain piece, and it only inspires me to create more.

I’ve decided to start free lancing, and selling some of my art work.
Feel free to message me or leave a comment if interested.

Hi guys,

missed ya’ll & the art.

As promised, I told y’all I’ll be working more on my craft and sharing my journey with ya’ll. Now that I am settled in my new place, I have the equipment, time and creative space to create the work I want to create for ya’ll. Here’s a rough sketch of what I have going on so far. I would love to sell some of my art pieces for ya’ll and would like to know if ya’ll would be interested in purchasing. I could also make custom work as well. Feel free to comment and like this post so I have an idea.

Much love,

Lo.
