artist MichelleMcAdams . I
am a self taught artist working in a variety of mediums, specializing
in Colored Pencil. I
grew up idolizing the well known wildlife artist Robert Bateman, and
dreamed of being able to paint as beautifully as him. I attempted to
take art classes in college to pursue my interest but found that I
hated art classes! Instead I studied Wildlife Biology at Colorado
State University where my love and appreciation for wildlife grew. My
professional career took another path, and years later I again yearned
to follow my dream of becoming an artist. The internet offered so many
more opportunities to learn different mediums and through some trial
and error I found what I needed to learn on my own.
say that to succeed as an artist it is best to develop a style that is
recognizable. I am still searching for that particular style as I
have many interests and love drawing just about anything. Wildlife has
always been my first love and my first choice as a subject for my
original works. My
commission work began with pet portraits for family and friends. My
goal was to provide a piece of art that captured the animals
personality. Taking a quality reference photo, I am able to isolate
the pet and often add a background that is much more
pleasing than the original photograph. I enjoy drawing human critters as
well and offer portrait commissions as well. I am fortunate to be commissioned by the National Collegiate
Hockey Conference to draw the winners for the annual Mark Rudolph Achievement Award and retirement portraits. I love creating art and having people enjoy what I create!
