Becoming The Artist

As an artist, my biggest competitor is myself. I am the only person I need to surpass, all the while taking in inspiration from Artists before and after me. Constantly looking for new ways to grow, I look to share not just the visual but also the little things that make up the artist as a whole in both skill and success.

Ever Since I stumble across this amazing artist I have been in complete awe of her ability to paint with such ease and accuracy and still keep her own personality evident in her brush strokes. I want more of the world to see the caliber at which this artist Alyssa Monks creates her work. Check out her site
