I do commissions. Please contact me through DeviantArt, Facebook, or via email.

I've been drawing on and off since I was about 12 years old. I had the chicken pox and had to stay in bed all day for 2 weeks, in the middle of my summer break. I got bored with coloring in my "Rose Petal" coloring book, so I started trying to draw the pictures from the book instead.

In the third grade, my son, :iconarcticwolf2002:, was placed into his school's "Gifted and Talented Program" for artistic talent he has displayed. I manage a separate account on DeviantArt for him, so that he can have his own favorites collection and such.
Interests
As I am sure most of my friends here already know, I discovered, and began to participate in, Colored Pencil Magazine's monthly challenges.

Since March, I have participated in 6 challenges, shown below:
March: "Veiled" and April: "Wildflowers"
Veiled by Nephthys76Wildflowers by Nephthys76

May: "Rocket" and July: "Lilac Roller"

October: "Sweet"

And finally, November: "Apparition"

Quite happily, I was informed last week that my drawing, "Apparition", was selected as the winner of the "Beginner/Student" category for November!

I encourage anyone who is reading this journal entry, who has ever drawn, or wanted to draw, with colored pencils to look into these monthly challenges.  The challenges are supported by sponsors, who base their amount of support on how active the participation is.  It's a great opportunity to support other artists, and also get support from them.  Also, it's enlightening to see how each interpretation of a single reference differs from the others (one of the reasons I also like the :icondraw-along: group).

You can learn about the current monthly challenge on their DA page: :iconcoloredpencilmag: and also by joining their Flickr group.  Each challenge must be at least 90% in Colored Pencils, and it must use the reference from that month in some way.

If you subscribe to Colored Pencil Magazine, look for my winning entry to be featured in the monthly challenge section in the January issue.
