In 2014 I sketched my very first set of stylish (fashion) illustration pieces. I had never sketched people nor sketched in this category. So I sketched my sisters and me. I made three sketches and then used these sketches as my first set in greeting cards and art prints as well as one mug. My very first product that was manufactured.
My style was so different back then. In fact, I didn't even know what my style was other than my cartoon (Maya). I didn't go to art school. I was from the legal world at the time. So I knew I had to put in a lot of work and learn as much as I could so that I could improve. It took a lot of practice, coffee and some tears through the years until I saw some improvement.
I still have much to learn and my style is always evolving in some way but I am so proud of the progress I've made. I love the art and art style I create now, but this set will forever be in my heart ❤
