Hello and welcome to my new art blog. I am happy to have you and with this first post I would just like to introduce myself.
I am Shelli Fitzpatrick, an indy artist residing in the great state of Oklahoma in the USA. I’ve been creating art in one form or another for as long as I can remember. When I was young and people would ask me, “what do you want to be when you grow up?” my answer was always, “I want to be an artist.” Of course, as is common with so many young budding artists I was told that I should pick a real goal for my life if I didn’t want to starve and I let the idea take hold that I could never make a decent living as an artist so I didn’t pursue it as fervently as I should have. Then life happened, I got married, had children and went to work as a waitress to help raise them. But my love for creating art never went away and I would draw and paint on things to give away as gifts to my friends and family.
Later on after my girls were grown and on their own I was able to start dabbling in digital art and photography. Over the past 2 decades I have enjoyed learning new and interesting ways to create art with my digital tools and offering it for sale through several different platforms. I have sold my art and designs to people all over the world and each sale is just as thrilling as the first one was.
This blog is where I will share with you new art I have finished, new techniques I am trying and thoughts or ideas about life as an artist or just life in general.
Thanks for joining me here and I will see you again soon!
