Hey! My name is Cillalea. ( actually its my on-line name, but close enough) I have been an artist since birth, a nurse for 20 years, and a tattoo artist for the past 3 years. I mainly do pencil drawings, but have worked with pastels, watercolors and acrylic paints. I look forward to posting some of my work and getting feedback-both positive and negative. As most artists are, I am very self-critical. I remember once when I was little and I had made a mistake on something. My mom said "oh, don't worry, you'll be the only one who will ever see it" she was right, but it drove me crazy, because it was all I could see! My mother is an unbelievable artist, however she works more with weaving, spinning and yarn making and dye-ing. She even bought 2 angora rabbits, so she could shave them for their fur! When she starts looking at Llamas, I get nervous! Happy Days to everyone!
