There are two quotes that I feel describe where I am as a young artist. 

Creativity takes courage.” - Henri Matisse

 Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing.” - Salvador Dali

Art makes me happy.  It gives me an outlet to be creative and relax.  I enjoy drawing and painting mostly.  I also work with fiber and clay. 

I believe that being an artist and showing your creativity to others takes courage, which is why I chose a quote from artist Henri Matisse.   I also believe that as a young artist, still learning and growing, that it’s important to admire the works of other artists.   I try new techniques and develop my own abilities by learning about and emulating other artists.  My very first painting was inspired by the works of Salvador Dali. 

I am currently perfecting anime and manga-style illustrations by researching different types.  My current preference is Shoujo, which focuses on females as the lead characters.  I also admire Andy Price and Katie Cook who illustrate the My Little Pony comic book series.

 I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy creating it. 

Tierney lives in Columbia, Missouri, with her parents, sister, 2 dogs and a cat.  She enjoys art, golf, music and spending time with her friends, grandparents and her extended family.
