When I was about 13 I took an interest in astrology and began observing the twelve zodiacs. I was very artistic at that age and while I was studying the characteristics of each star sign, I decided to portray the nature of each sign in art form. I drew all twelve zodiac signs as humans, and rendered them with colored pencil. Sadly, in those past 7 years the work I did was lost, so recently I got the urge to do it again! Currently there is no zodiac art out there that portrays people of color, so I am happy to be the first!
I started this series in mid-June and now in mid-August I completed my last piece. After several requests, I have worked to create prints of these zodiac art pieces to frame, and many of these signs are available for purchase on my Etsy shop! The three very last pieces are in the process of being printed, and are not yet on my shop. They should be up by tomorrow.

Thank you for all of your support during these two months! I’ve fallen in love with painting all over again and I hope to start a new series soon!
