I'm a professional animal/wildlife artist specializing in acrylic paintings and life-like gourd sculpture. My preferred style is photo-realism, everything you see in my gallery are artworks. *** I DO NOT UPLOAD PHOTOGRAPHS (it prevents confusion ;))*** I accept commissions so you can have a special artwork that can be enjoyed for generations. I only use the highest quality paints and surfaces. Along with acrylics I also use colored pencil, graphite, and ink. Check out my website and Gourd Blogs too!

Current Residence: NC, USA

Personal Quote: "If ART isn't from the HEART, then is it ART at all?"

Hi everyone! I know Facebook isn't for everybody, but if you visit and post on Facebook as yourself or your business (good for promotions atleast) then let's share likes and give friend requests! Unlike here on DA where I upload mainly finished products, rarely WIPs, I keep Facebook constantly updated with my projects. For instance, I'm currently making another large gourd dragon on commission...on my personal FB page or business page you can see the dragon coming along in all her epic glory! She's going to be amazing! I don't feel compelled to upload tons of WIPs and progress shots here so Facebook or Instagram is the only place you're going to be able to see them. And I'm more active there, so I'll be able to see your doings too if you use it for advertising or business related stuff. :)

Feel free to friend me or INVITE me to like YOUR business page. I'll like if you like back, either my business art page or my book page for "Improbable...Never Impossible." Let's all be friends! Because all of you are my friends already for being great viewers, favers, and commenters. :hug:

My personal page:

My "Art from the Heart" business page:…

My page for Improbable...Never Impossible children's book:…

I'm not going away on here, I've just been less active lately with lots of things going on. Been busy promoting my new children's book below, and I've entered my very first art exhibition. Then I entered several more after that that're still in the jury process. I guess I'm late to the game of professional artist shows. I've been painting for 7 years and I've just NOW got the courage to look at galleries and such! Better late than never I suppose lol. :shrug:

If you're on Facebook don't forget to say hi, friend me, or invite a like! :wave:

Hey thank you very much for accepting the request for my new group!

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Heart :happybounce: 
Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how many followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!<3

Hi! :wave: Still artsy fartsy and a hermit LOL. :fart: Where did you move to? Hope you're not getting the crazy cold blast...miserable even here! How's art and schooling been?
Zxxo Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2014
I'm in Houston! It's wacky. I'm moving to China soon, though. Houston's not cold at all.. People get bundled up for the slightest of breezes..

Art? UHHHH...
School? More like working my bum off. But it's fine, I love working.
ART-fromthe-HEART Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Oh yeah! Gimme the warm, it's been really cold here. Brrr. China? Oh wow what a leap! What will you be doing there?

...has it really been that long? I forget it's been long enough for your group to graduate and then some. Time flies. :faint:
