For as long as I can remember I have loved to draw and paint and it was always of some sort of animal, mainly horses, lots and lots of horses. I pursued a career in art and graduated from Florida International University with a degree in Advertising and a minor in Art. I ended up taking a very long hiatus to raise a house full of kids, but courtesy of a hip replacement in 2018, I have found my paintbrush again. In February of 2019, I attended a workshop in Kalispell Montana with renowned pastels artist Lesley Harrison, and have fallen head over heels in love with pastel painting. We had a photography workshop with 10 different amazing animals that will give me enough painting models for the rest of my life! Each painting is an adventure and helps me become a better artist. God has blessed me with a talent and I love sharing it with the world.Read More Featured Artist – Holly Cannon
I am a self-taught artist & have been a serious artist since the age of 8 years old with a focus on pencil & digital drawings and acrylic & oil paintings, but I work with other mediums as well including computer graphics & minor video editing & production. My purpose as an artist is to share, convey, & recreate the love and passion that I feel in whatever the subject matter is that I am working with. Through the creation of art, one is able to explore one’s passions, perhaps creating inspiration & the drive within others to strive for their own goals.
Always continually striving to learn & improve my craft, I work with all kinds of subject matters, but my main specialty focuses on animals & nature. I have always loved animals since very young, & I feel their spirits and souls which I love being able to convey thru my art. My artwork is available throughout Ventura & LA counties, online thru my website, online vendors, & social media, & as far away as 2 Kung Fu schools in China.
