Who am I? So glad you asked, my name is Cecilia Kinzie and I started drawing with colored pencils in April of 2016, and before that I was coloring in adult coloring books. I discovered adult coloring books as a way to cope with the stress of living with chronic illness and pain. You can see my art here.
My goal is to spread joy to the world through sharing the beautiful fine art instrument known as the colored pencil and introduce people to the amazing Neocolor I and II wax pastels, the art supplies of my youth.
I noticed most of the Facebook Groups for Colored Pencil Art were not geared towards beginners. So I started the group on a whim to make some new artist friends, and well almost 5,000 members later, the rest is history. 🙂
The best thing that ever happened to me was to pick up a colored pencil and start drawing. Colored pencils take me to a world of color, beauty, and joy. Won’t you come with me?
