And so it begins!

The website is starting to look like a website, but before I go much further I have to decide on one small detail. Do I want to use my “real” name or an online identity?

Signature dirty

I’ve always signed my art (if I had signed it at all) with my initials, MAS, often with the year of creation in the loop created by my ‘S’. While this makes sense among friends and family did I really want to open myself up to the internet? Tentatively, I say yes, I’ll be my own brand. I could change my mind next week, who knows? Until then, I’ve made a slightly elaborate  version of my signature to use in some of the website elements.

Edit: Funny enough, I decided that just my signature was good without the paint pallet addition. Sometimes you have to stick to the classics.







Bloggity Blog


Website building has never been a strong suit on mine. WordPress is definitely geared more towards blogs so I figured that I might as well do a few posts while I figure out what my finale design will be. Who know? Maybe I’ll keep this feature.

In the meantime, if you want to see how this bear drawing was made feel free to hop over to my Youtube

Welcome to the jungle… err my first post

Looks like I’m doing a website, I’m told all the cool kids are doing it. What, with their pins and being Insta-ready. What’s a girl to do?

In all seriousness though, having my own site for art will be a good thing once I figure it all out.


Thank you for joining me on this journey.
