Hi, I'm Carli. I like to draw, write, and just... live my life. =]
My art education comes from studying and drawing from life, Marshall Vandruff (www.marshallart.com), and learning from various artists I've had the pleasure to work with.
For books on enhancing your artistic skills I highly recommend The "Natural Way to Draw" by Kimon Nicolaides and "Drawing Lessons from the Great Masters" by Robert Beverly Hale to start. =] (You can see a longer list on Marshall's website.) If you live in Southern California, I highly recommend taking seminars from Marshall Vandruff, and checking out schools like Concept Design Academy and Gnomon School of Visual Art for those interested in developing technical and professional skills from exceptional teachers at a lower cost.
I AM currently accepting commissions and freelance work at this time. Please note or e-mail me for more information. Thank you!
I try to post sketches daily on my tumblr, so please check that out if you're interested! =]
Thanks for stopping by!
