Thomasina A. Durkay Designer, Illustrator, Sculptor
I'm a simple girl, born & raised in a small town. I learned to draw at an early age from my dad & later graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Art Education and a minor in Art History...& then about 8 years later, a Diploma in Digital Design. I love, practice, and teach all forms of visual art: drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, fibers, metals, mixed media, recycled media, photography, graphic design...you name it. I also freelance in traditional art some, but mostly digital art. I've illustrated book covers & interior illustrations, logos for businesses & sports teams, & whatever creativity someone needs. More of my digital stuff can be seen at https://colorfulthomasina.myportfolio.com/
I draw inspiration from many sources including my family, my students, my pets, music & concerts, nature, my many various interests & travels, & just everyday life. I've lived in PA, TX, VA...& who knows where I'll wander to next. Wherever I am, however, I hope to always share my passion for arts & crafts. Whether I am teaching a course, exhibiting my own art, or marketing for a client, I hope to inspire others & make a positive impact on the community & contemporary art scene. I don't want to work to live; I want to live to work...& make this world a more beautiful, colorful place in the process.
