My name is Janine Messenger, I'm an aspiring artist, illustrator, designer. I currently live in Erwin, TN. I was born in Tampa, FL. I grew up in both Tampa, and Ashville, NC. I've been drawing sense I was young. I've taken my style from nature, and some of the old masters of art. I started drawing mostly realistic animal drawings, when I was 9 from a book with wildlife drawings in it. As I got older I started adding, more abstract, and surrealist designs to my drawings. I also developed a scratch board type technique, to oil pastels. Then eventually developed a highly detailed design technique using markers. I've also created work with polymer clay as well. I hope to become a fulltime illustrator of Children's Books, and Adult Coloring Books. Using my stylised techniques.
