πŸ˜ƒ Long time no see!

Hi everybody! It’s great to be back on here again! I would like to apologize for the inactivity of my blog. School has had me swamped and I haven’t had a lot of time for art either. I’ve only done a few things. ☹ Now that I’m all caught up, I have more time to post and really get my business going! Some interesting stuff has happened since I’ve posted. My family and I took another trip to Florida back in October. We stayed in a small apartment building rightΒ on Pass-A-Grill beach in St. Petersburg, FL. It’s a very small and quiet place to stay, but the beaches are beautiful!

About a month after we got back, I got a comment on one of my recent pieces from aΒ very unique company called Coastal Obsession. (Here is their website, go check them out!Β They asked me about doing an artist feature with them!πŸ˜„ I absolutely love their stuff, so I was so excited when they asked me!

I’ve put up some new paintings recently on Instagram and gotten a lot of positive feedback! I hope that updating by blog more and if I start selling some of my art, I can really grow as an artist! If you don’t follow my Instagram already, my username is @artfortheoceans. Please leave comments on what you think! I’m always looking to improve. Also, if your interested in something that I’ve done or have an idea, you can contact me through my email, 😊🌊 I hope everyone has a greatΒ day!

Tommorows World Oceans Day, so I decided to take the “better bag challenge”.


You can read all about this challenge on The challenge is to not use plastic bags  for the rest of the year. Can you imagine the impact on the Earth if everyone didn’t use plastic bags anymore? Please help make this dream a reality and take the “better bag challenge” with me!!

If you sign up for the challenge, take a look around their website too, it’s pretty interesting and the donations go for a good cause.

β˜”οΈ Happy May! β˜”️

Hello! I hope everyone’s week went well. I know it’s Monday tomorrowπŸ˜’, but by the end of the week, it’s going to be nice weather!! I can’t wait till school gets over. I get out on the 22nd of May. So excited! 

I’ve had a little spare time, so I started working on some new stuff. I’ll get some more pictures up as soon as I finish the drawings.

   (Sorry this picture is not the best quality, but it’s the best I could get.)

🌱 Happy Spring Break! πŸŒ±

      Hi everyone! I’m sorry it’s been a while since I’ve updated! School will be over in about two and a half months so I’ll have more time to keep this up. For spring break, my family and I planned a last minute trip to Florida! It’s been great weather and mostly sunny skies (other than a little rain shower this morning).  


      Anna Maria Beach on Friday 3/20/15

      Anna Maria island is very pretty and I recommend it to anyone visiting Florida. They have cool shops, and nice, clean beaches. Today, since it was my birthdayπŸŽ‰ , my parents said I could do whatever I wanted. So obviously I choose Save Our Seabirds and Mote Marine. As you guys know, I’ve been saving up money to donate. I finally did it! The people I talked to were so nice! I would like to thank them again for taking time out of their day to talk to me! The people who volunteer there are so nice too! I had a great time there today!! Check out their websites at the links below.


      I had a really good lunch at Columbia restaurant in St. Armands. If you ever go, get the Original Cuban sandwich. It’s very good. We went over to Nokomis Beach and watched the sunset. Our final event of the day was Smugglers Cove Mini putt. It’s a fun course of 18 holes and after that you can buy ice cream and feed alligators. What’s better than that? I’ve had a great break so far, and I can’t wait to see what else Florida has to discover! 

      πŸŽ‰ Happy New year everyone!! πŸŽ‰

      Hello! I’ll be posting a lot more now because I finally got caught up on the stuff I’ve been needing to get caught up on. So as promised, I’ll be posting stuff about my 365 day challenge!! I’ll post day one now and I’ll post the rest of the stuff throughout the next day or two.
      My 365 day challenge theme is sharks!! Everything I do this year (for my challenge) will have to do with sharks. So this is day one, I made a hammerhead shark out of clay and painted him to look reel. (⬅️ see my pun there? Reel, real, haha πŸ˜„)


      πŸ”† Good morning πŸ”†

      Hi everyone!! Something great happened at school and I’ve never been more excited or happy! My art teacher has asked me to design and paint a few murals at the school! She told me that she has never had this much talent in a student that’s a freshman!! This is a great experience and I’m glad she chose me to do it!! I’ll post my designs and I do them so keep checking back! I wanted to thank everyone who help me get where I am in my art career today!!

      On another note, I’ve saved/raised $156.00!! I’m getting that much closer to my $400.00 dollar goal!!
