Description This is the original pencil drawing of my Flower Fairy design before the color was added in Photoshop. It shows a tiny fairy next to a flower with ladybugs, snails and butterflies. There is a stylized vine border at the top and bottom.
Tricia Shanabruch, Mount Joy, PA Member Since April 2010 Artist Statement I am a freelance illustrator that grew up with a vivid imagination and a love of drawing, especially unicorns with eyelashes...now expanding to fairies and various other fantasy creatures, winged things, and flowers of all types. Enjoying art led to an interest in Graphic Design. I attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and obtained an Associate Degree in Visual Communications and a diploma in Desktop Publishing. My chosen medium is a combination of pencil drawing and computer generated art utilizing Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. After spending over eleven years enjoying work as a Graphic Designer I moved to Ohio to be with my husband. There I worked in a jewelry repair shop to satisfy my curiosity in jewelry design, while still honing my design and illustration skills in my spare time. I am now back in Pennsylvania with my husband, our boxer, Sammy and our cat, Misty, who are a constant source of enjoyment and inspiration. Enjoying drawing, design, and crafts more than ever I continue to pursue my dream of inspiring others with my imagination.
