As a teenager Darcy was an enthusiastic artist, constantly drawing, until a series of discouragements and serious life changes led to them unfortunately quitting this pursuit. As an adult Darcy has now rekindled their love of art and has been working hard for the last few months to learn about art practice and theory. The result is an art process that is ever-improving and a passion for experimenting with art styles and mediums.
