My name is Amelia and I’m the one holding the pencil. I live in Gwinn, MI with my wonderful husband and our four dogs. I have drawn as long as I could hold a marker and jumped into the world of digital illustration in 2020. I’ve always been inspired by nature and have found a delight in capturing the incredible intricacies and diversity of details.
I hope to create a portfolio that catalogs the many shapes, sizes and colors of our feathered friends and some fascinating facts about them along the way. As a hunter, I am blessed with the opportunity to study upland birds and waterfowl up close. The way their iridescent feathers gleam with the sun and the astonishing complexity of God's glorious creations.
I am using a process known as digital illustration. Using the same techniques of traditional drawing, I now have an entire studio of colors and brushes right at my fingertips which allows me to take my work anywhere. While I sometimes miss the tactile scratch of charcoal on paper and patiently mixing the correct shade of paint, the artistic process still applies and I've fallen in love with the possibilities that lie within the digital canvas.
Just begin. Begin again. And again.
