Artist Profile

JJ the Artist

Medium: Acrylic on canvas

Description:  Realistic style painter, with special skills in portrait painting

I've been an artist at heart ever since childhood. Creativity is something that is as natural to me as love and fear. I was able to pursue a career as a full time artist in March of 2016. Since then, nothing has felt more right. I now make a living by making commission paintings, selling older works, doing graphic design and vending at various events. 'Artists don't make any money' was a phrase that haunted me for a while. I see now that it is just a phrase. I love doing what I do and how my art makes people feel. I love being able to create, being able to pull an idea out of the air and convert it into a 2D image. I feel like art is something I was born to do, I'm a natural born artist.
