My name is Skylan Abraham. I'm a 23-year-old woman with an admiration for all things creative. I am mother to three boys and a fiancée to my best friend Jacob. Art has been a part of my life since I was young, and it'll never NOT be a part of me.
I n the past, I was timid, quiet, easily overspoken. I gave an air of maturity, that I could claim, but that description no longer fits me. Don't get me wrong, I'm still meak, mature even, but what now lays underneath that veil also lies someone willing to change, to take courage, and speak up for herself and for the vulnerable mother that she is, that I am- unsure of where I should take my next steps in life as an independent woman, and to what direction I should travel in the journey to guiding my children.

I've had plenty of interests run across my plate but nothing had ever wet my palette as much as art had.

It was the first one I'd ever watched, but there was just something about it that I couldn't take my eyes away from. T he lead, I found, was everything I wanted to be.

* A uthor Tidbit* Happy Day everyone!! Wow, doesn't time just seem to pass by so seamlessly these days? It's already the day of our fifth artist feature! I know that doesn't sound like much when they're still are over 100 to go, but slow progress is still progress and should be celebrated all the same! With that said, let's get on with today's feature! 😊* T oday's artist has a knack for creating the cutest designs, with a little humor tied in: allow me to introduce artist Tianna Almy . I can't place the reason why but I felt the above artworks fit best with a poem: Pastels, pastels, happy yellows, greens, blues, pinks, and purples, jubilee! Colors so bright yet soft you see, within them, happy faces smile at me-- I smile in return, my mouth can't help but react; AWWW, how lovely are these, how sweet their owner must be, to draw such sights into life, and bring their joy and words of wisdom, and humor into mine. I' m
