Tequeita Dixon's World of Art and Music

In the beginning there was art

I started out doing art at a very young age. I always love to draw cartoons and just like every other little girl I enjoyed coloring books. I fell in love with a cartoon called "The Simpsons". A fun fact is that I was so in love with Bart Simpson that I told my mother I was going to marry him. I would draw scenes from "The Simpsons". That is where it all started but later in middle school I was interested in drawing real people. I honestly did not know that I can draw so well. It was like I just picked up a pencil one day and was like, "hey I can draw". When I started out my artwork was not that great but I kept pursuing it. I started using other mediums like charcoal. Later in 2009 I started painting. The same thing with painting my paintings at first were not that great. As I continue painting on canvases and t-shirts I got better and better. Now my paintings look realistic and I even dabbled in airbrush. I have not mastered airbrushing yet but I do plan to work on that.
