My name is Amelia and I’m the one holding the pencil. I live in Marquette, MI with my wonderful husband and our two dogs. I have drawn as long as I could hold a marker, but have only recently focused my creative energies into a sustained project. 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 drawing. This is a new technique for me but the convenience is astounding. An entire studio of colors and brushes to choose from right at my fingertips 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 to digital drawing and I’m excited to master new skills.
Just begin. Begin again. And again. Cheers to hope and new endeavors.
