I'm a new member of the VAST team & presently exploring pen & ink

First post! Yippie!

I'll introduce myself by saying that I work in a number of mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture (free standing and wall pieces), digital arts, ceramic wheel thrown pottery, graphic arts and a little in costume-making and other fiber arts. It all comes from being an art teacher (K - 12) where I was expected to teach everything art (I have a bachelors in studio art and a masters in art education). I am now a full time working artist. 

I'll be keeping it simple & following the rules and only posting my wall art on this site.

The above drawings are my latest. Pen & ink on bristol board. I am using sepia colored ink.

I've generally been making small pieces this summer that don't require much fuss. These are OSWOAs. I refuse to give into air conditioning even though it's been in the nineties all summer... and small pieces means I can transport my works-in-progress to a lake or cool spot under a tree, work on a small board, not worry if I screw it up (because they're not huge projects that take months or weeks).

Now that the weather is cooler, I'm onto some more mega projects.

I love the delicacy of your line and intricacy of your design. I'm partial to insects, too. Nice job! Good luck and welcome!
