Travel and art are two of my biggest passions. I’ve been fortunate enough to do a lot of traveling this year. So much so, I haven’t had as much time to work on all of the ideas and inspiration that I have gained.
I have decided to start by working on a series of small paintings. 6×6 canvases in oil inspired from my various trips. I have started with my most recent trip to Michigan. I kayaked around Grand Island, visited little resort towns in the Upper Peninsula, and hiked Pictures Rocks National Park. It really is a spectacular place and I had no idea it was so beautiful. Here is one of my first pieces from a hike.
About Anastacia Drake - Fine Artist
I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free.
I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
