About your instructor

"Art is a love and like any love it's rough, but the passion that goes into it, is well worth its uncertainties."

© Lovietta Simpkins. I grew up in Chicago, Self taught and drawing these crazy little half dog half human creatures on notebook paper at the age of three. That's what started everything. Now as a working artist I collaborate with clients solving key problems, lead large and small teams, train / coach students and employees. I challenge myself everyday by constantly learning new things.

I have a BFA in Illustration from Columbia College Chicago, and currently freelance as a Creative Consult & Artist. I pull from my experiences, family, and the world around me. I like to explore art and create things that are whimsical, beautiful, ugly and even uncertain.

My art is a walking storybook, it’s full of life, flare and emotion.

Thanks for Reading. Stay Creative!
