|Artist or Student Biography||
I have been a professional artist for many years. I began in graphic design in advertising agencies when I first graduated from Art Center College, and then transitioned to many years freelancing as a children’s book illustrator from my home studio as I raised my four children. I have many years of illustrating and teaching behind me, now I am concentrating on fine art working from my home studio. I really want to learn more proficiency with oil paint, I feel that I am still beginning to discover how to work with it. I have been painting plein air a lot this year, finding that I need to learn lots more!
I have a website that I have neglected but here on my sketchblog I keep a journal of recent work. https://skivingtonsofar.blogspot.com/
