When I embarked on this art journey - of making my photos and photo art available for purchase, I began meeting or getting reacquainted with other artists. I've loved hearing their stories, exploring their work, and being inspired by their dedication and creativity. I thought my readers might enjoy learning about them, too, so I'm going to introduce some of them to you in the coming weeks. Each Friday, I'll feature an artist here and share some of their work.
Today's guest is Krystine Kercher. We've known each other for many years through writing groups and prayer groups. Now we're members of art groups, too. Krystine is the person who talked me into trying Zazzle for my art, so we have her to thank for creating a monster!

I'm kind of quirky and eclectic. I use original photos I've taken in some of my artwork, but I also do colorful cartoon drawings, and I like to play with word art. I love experimenting with new techniques.
Almost all of the artwork I currently have available for sale is digital.

How did you get started creating this particular type of art?
I got started creating digital artwork after I acquired a point and shoot camera in 2009 that allowed me to take nice photos. This led to playing with photo editing software, which led to discovering that I could draw and edit, and even paint with pixels.
Tell us the story behind ONE of your favorite creations.

My daughter says the whale is a little creepy. And then she says that she loves it. That makes me laugh every time.

About the Artist:
She believes that art should never be boring or stale, but interesting and alive, and should always flow from the heart.
Flowers and cats rank high among her favorite subjects, but she also loves drawing cartoon people and animals, and creating word art.
She likes a challenge, and she takes custom orders.

Some funky, some beautiful.
Some bold, some gentle.
Some playful, some romantic.
