Artwork by Vivian Mosley
I started making art as a child! As a 4 year old child sitting in Sunday school I began to draw. My Sunday school teacher told my mother that I had talent and was advanced for my age. It’s always been a passion of mine to draw, sculpt or paint and Dover High School Art Teachers helped develop my skills.
I never seemed to have the time to paint, I made a decision to pursue this seriously a couple years ago, I sat in a class and felt overwhelmed learning again but soon it was the highlight of my week. Nothing is as rewarding as painting with a group who offer insights and suggestions that helped them. As a teacher, I encourage all to not give up when they feel discouraged, that art evolves and as you grow and learn you find the peace and feeling of accomplishment when you finish a piece. I bet all artists have painted over a canvas in frustration!
Work has been a challenge when I want to make time for art, now being self employed I have time!
I want to learn more techniques that the old masters used! I want to be confident to do portraits, and do one of each of my children and grandchildren.
I really want to win so I can take my art to a higher level. the Old Master Academy results look amazing and I want this!
A vote for me is a vote for a 63 year old artist who wants to keep on learning!!
