of working things out... Alanis Morrisette, a true artistic genius! So, the notification to end my lease on this studio in October has been handed in. That doesn't mean the end of Pet Portraits - Animal Artist, just that I will be shifting my studio back to the home. My new house is close to the centre of Tecoma and has much better light and surroundings than the last place. Why pay money for something that hasn't really made that much difference to the number of commissions I am getting? It has been good, and has allowed me to build my confidence as a professional artist.
Maybe more in the community know of me now, or at least they will after my next ad comes out but there are other things I could be spending my rent money on... my first tax return is going to be an interesting one!! I wish I had managed to build my online presence a bit more before I took on this place, but we live and learn.
Juno is still with me, for the moment..... He is happy at my side, hopefully he can learn to walk on the lead soon or he will have to go to a hunter or some one who can handle his energy.....
Hi, my name is Chrystal Carter, I am a mother to three lovely girls. I emigrated with my husband to Australia in December 2014, and have been living the dream, ever since! We are settled in the Dandenong Ranges and I have recently set up my brand new home art studio , in the heart of the hills, Tecoma. Here, I can follow my life long dream of being an artist drawing another of my greatest passions, animals, in particular, peoples beloved pets. I have always been fascinated by animals, nature and wildlife and where better to pursue my passions than here in Australia, and it certainly hasn't disappointed me! Follow me as a take on this new venture and brave new world, together with my wonderful family, and not forgetting my furry companions, Vin the Cat and Juno the Dog!
