I'm a dreamer and an artist just like all of you . . .

I have been drawing since I was six years old. I didn't think much of my drawings, but my classmates were stunned by them. I drew a pair of pink Converse sneakers when I was nine years old, and my mom was so amazed she got me to sign it and made copies of it to everyone she knew. Then she consigned me to a ton of art courses in drawing, painting, and a little of ceramics.
Art is a natural talent and a gift. Sports have different seasons, school ends eventually, but art stays with you forever.
To me, music and art are the most beautiful and compelling forms of self-expression and catharsis. Art is the breath of life in me; it is my passion, my joy, and my sanctuary. I draw and write whenever I feel the pull - I have much more time in the summer, but despite school, workload, and stress, I draw and write in between.

I mostly do photography, anime art, fan art, realistic drawings, and literature. I have many art pieces, I am the founder of Ran-maoFC and a contributor to PhotographySeasons, and I update my journal entry every few days to weekly :)

StrongButGentle has started a donation pool!
25 / 5,000
I know it looks like I'm asking for a lot but every bit will help!! I have a new group, Ran-maoFC, and when it gets enough members I would like to have contests for it but I don't have any prizes besides features :( So if you could donate, that would be nice!
