The Creative Process
Lacy Sunshine's resident artist is the renowned and award winning Heather Valentin. A "traditional artist" for over 28 years, Heather has always loved the feel of a pen, pencil, and paint brush in hand using then on paper or canvas. Digital drawing was never an option until recently with the amazing development of the iPad Pro and pencil. It took Heather a while to even pick up the pencil, for there is nothing better then the feel of an actual lead pencil and paper in hand. However, since Heather's diagnosis with MS and Fibromyalgia, there are days when this form of drawing comes in handy. This allows Heather to be handicapable not handicapped. The Apple Pencil is weighted differently then a regular pencil, which helps on days when tingling and numbness sets in. Even though this form is done on a tablet, each original character Heather draws is done by hand, sketching to inking then bringing it to your creative table to color and create with. Below for your viewing pleasure you can see Heather's actual original creative process, from start to finish. No copying and pasting of images to make another, just pure god given talent drawing characters to brighten ones lives. Art means the world to Heather and she hope this joy of her artistic ability is reflected in her work.
