Giving your unpainted armies a ray of hope.

Keep Moving Forward

If there's one good thing I can say about myself, it's that I'm never satisfied with the knowledge I have. There's always something new I can learn, and it drives me nuts if I'm not actively seeking to learn more about something.

This aspect of my character has been a driving factor in my painting. It took me from my first painted model to starting a business - that drive to learn and grow is what keeps me going and ensures I'll never settle for "good enough." On a bad day, all I can say is "what I know is good enough... for now."

I say that because I'm very excited about the new knowledge I've been putting in to practice.

Everyone Starts Somewhere
As I've been building the bulk of my commission painting business, I've been overwhelmed at how much is involved in just getting this thing off the ground. I entered in to it thinking a website with some basic info would suffice. It wasn't until I turned to my friends for advice that I realized I needed a big online presence, expensive equipment, a well-designed website, a decent logo... on and on the list seems to go!
