United States
My name is Kara Yowell; I am a 25 year old Mother, Wife, Sister, Daughter, Insurance Agent and an Artist. I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. Even at a young age art has always been an important part in my life. One of my favorite memories as a child is when my Dad and I would sit down at the table and start a drawing, passing the page back and forth, each of us adding a little bit to our drawing. We didn’t come up with masterpieces by any means, but, for me that is not what art is about. Art is about creating a feeling in the viewer. If just one of my pieces stirs just the tiniest bit of feeling or thought in a viewer, my goal has been achieved.
When I create I am taken to another place, somewhere beyond the stress of a days work or the frustrations of life. All of the negative feelings slip away once my mind starts to create. They are then transformed into something beautiful; a piece of art.

Current Residence: Far Nor Cal
Favourite genre of music: Rock
Favourite style of art: fantasy, realism
MP3 player of choice: The one that's in my hands
Favourite cartoon character: Betty Boop
Personal Quote: "Art is my realease"
Interests
As many of you have probably noticed I haven't been on here as much recently as I used to be.  Nor have I been turning out the amount of artwork that I used to or would like to.  

The reasons for this: I am currently 8 months pregnant, my house was under construction for a few months so I didn't have use of my art room, and my job has been keeping me a lot more busy than it used to.  

Never fear, I am still painting and drawing and taking photos.  I just can't not do those things.  They are apart of who I am.

Within the last week I was featured in our local newspaper as the Artist of the week type thing.  I was also in the fair last week and received two 3rd places (one for "surrounded by fertility" and one for the photo "not-so-ninja-turtle").

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm still here and really appreciate everyone's support and will continue to produce artwork (even if its not on a regular basis).

Hope everyone is well, Thank you for reading,

Kara
