le-bonheur-de-vivre's Profile Picture
Artist | Varied
United States
Born in Nashville, TN, living there and everywhere in between TX and NY, I earned my BFA from The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) where I majored in graphic design and minored in ceramics. My artistic journey started with drawing at 5, evolved to painting at 12, and graduated to include ceramics, sculpture, metals and printmaking at 18. I currently live in the Washington D.C. area, where I plan to pursue a MFA in Curatorial Practice and Multidisciplinary Studies in Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA).
I've been gone for quite some time...I have gone through a lot since December 2010...but my circumstances have not completely stopped me from creating art though it may have stopped me from uploading to dA.

Earlier this year I had the privilege of being part of AIA or Artists Inspiring Artists, which is a group started by 4 of fellow grads of The University of Texas at El Paso's Art Dept. AIA has showcased a compilation of individual work by means of The Sketchbook Project.

Below is the link to the sketchbook AIA submitted for The Sketchbook Project 2012.


For The Sketchbook Project 2013, I decided to work individually to showcase more work, random thoughts, etc. I am currently at work on this.

If you haven't participated in this before, I strongly encourage it. The Sketchbook Project brings together, thousands of creative people from around the world to form a traveling library of artists' books, which final rest place is the Brooklyn Art Library.

I'll be posting select pages from my sketchbook on dA once I have finished it.
