Art and Drawing

You want to be an Artist? Or at least you have always had the urge to draw or paint but never seem to have made the time to do it. I have assembled the inspiration, the materials and the ideas here. You can do it! You can start today!


I don't claim to be any kind of an Artist but I do have a passion for it. It has been one of those things that always haunted me. I have recently started to learn how to draw (as an adult) and it is going great for me. There is a level of satisfaction that is hard to describe.

Here is a sample of something I recently drew. Granted I will probably not be the next Picasso, but I will be a better me! And believe me I did not start out drawing like this. It took time and practice -all of which I totally enjoyed.

My Fantasy Art School!This is the free school I have created with art lessons that take you from beginner and teach you how to draw using fantasy subjects as an example. Broken down into easy to follow lessons about art and drawing. Fantasy Art School
