Today marks the start of a new venture - the opening of my online art studio and store. Welcome to NomiAntics!
I've been drawing and creating for as long as I can remember. When I was little, I would hide art supplies under my pillow and draw to fall asleep. In middle school, I would draw dragons around the edges of my notes to impress boys. I took every art class that I could and carried my sketchbook everywhere with me in high school, getting an ego boost every time anyone asked if I had any new drawings for them to peruse.
And then, I just... stopped. I got busy with work and life and adulting, and art got stuck on the back burner. There were entire months and years where I didn't create anything at all. I realized that there were people in my life who didn't know I could draw, didn't associate me with art, had never seen anything I'd created. And that was disappointing.
In 2019, I discovered Inktober - committing to drawing one thing every day for an entire month! I didn't think I could do it, but I did. And I discovered the more I create, the more I want to create. Once that faucet gets turned on, I just can't turn it off. I started following other artist pages and getting inspired with every post I saw.
So now I'm creating again, and I'm taking a leap and putting it out there for the world to see. We're open for business! I hope looking at art brings you as much joy as creating art brings me. Stick around and see what I make next!
