The Talented Miss Ray (my middle baby)

When my daughter was about five years old, she informed me that when she grew up, she wanted to sell lemonade for her career. Even though I was alarmed at her career of choice, I told her if that is what she wanted to do and be when she grew up, I would be proud of her.

As she grew she drew. If my house was to catch afire, her room would flame up the fastest because of all of the paper of drawings in her room. Her room is a fire hazard. But through her drawings you can see the growth of an artist. She has matured in her talent through the years without any formal training. And this fall when she heads off to college, majoring in art, the world will have another talent to acknowledge. I can't wait to see what she will create.

Here is some of her doodling. Major work is too large for uploading. Hopefully the public will soon see her work in galleries or wherever she chooses to work. Enjoy her wimsy.

What is it about drawing you like?
I like being able to imagine stuff and put it down on paper.

Do you think you can have a career in drawing?
Why not. It's not about money. It's about being creative.

What would you say is your style?
Animated with lots of color. I like creating characters in which a story can be written around.

Are youR characters day to day people?
They are based on fantasy with supernatural powers with love intersts. The world will never tire of a good love story.

What age group do you see drawn to your art?
It depends on the story line, but mostly young adults and teenagers.

Do you think your characters and art will change as you age?
Yes. As I learn more in college, I will incorporate what I learn in my art, but I want my work to remain fun and youthful.

What do you think about serious artists such as Pacaso, Monea etc.?
Why do you separate them as serious artists? All artists are serious. They have their own style and I have my own. I consider myself as a serious artist. I work hard on my work. I have THE same frustrations, self disappointments and struggles. All artists understand this creative process.

How do you feel about the starving artist phenomenon?
It's not fair. I'm not going to starve. People should love and appreciate artists before they die. I plan to have money. That's my dream.

Would you advise other artists to follow their dream?
Yes. Even though there may be rejection, you just have to keep at it. Doing what you love is important. That's the success; Being true to who you are. We need creativity and color to make life enjoyable. Artists add imagination to the routines of life.
