Hello to all the Artist's out there. I knew from the time I was six years old that I would be an artist as an adult. I drew with pencils until I was a teenager. I then dabbled in some watercolor and acrylic painting. I found clay when I was 18. I became a production potter. Throwing hundreds of mugs, bowls, plates, tea pots, casserole dishes... I became bored with it.
Then I found sculpting!! I'm a professional dog trainer and obedience competitor. I found a nich and soon I was scupting dog show trophies. People would win a trophy and then would commision me to sculpt their dog. I sculpt dogs in porcelain or bronze. From 3" to life size. Any breed.
I'm a free-lance artist and love my job! How about you?
