Etsy Finds Friday - April Rafko

It's **Etsy Finds Friday**
Today I am featuring the wonderful
Wildlife, Fantasy and Pet Portraits
created by:
 April Rafko
*~*Autumn Lane Artistry*~*

I am so inspired by April's amazing work, it is absolutely awesome! It is my pleasure to feature her artwork here today, for you to see and enjoy!!

This is what April says about her Artwork:
I am a mother to 1 little boy. I am passionate about art. I love to draw, paint, sew, and just overall craft. I think my love of art came from my childhood. As a young girl, I loved watching Disney cartoons. I drew them life-size in my parents' driveway. In addition to Disney characters, I loved to draw animals. I think with my art, the biggest thrill I get is having someone treasure my artwork as much as I do."

"In 2008, I began creating custom portraits for family Christmas presents. From there I created own business in beginning of 2009. I love nature and find myself compelled to show it’s beauty in every portrait I create. I have enjoyed painting and drawing all my life. Wildlife portraits are created from how I feel and the emotion that I find in a reference photo. My speciality is wildlife portraits but I also create custom pet portraits, people/family portraits, and fantasy portrait (either making up my own fairies or creating a custom fairy)."
