Lauren Estelle Tirro
Artist | Traditional Art
Im a self taught portrait/tattoo artist from south Florida. I have been drawing all my life, since I can remember. When I was younger my style of art was very different, people were still my subject but the style its self was more like detailed line drawings. After High School I felt the need to expand my artistic style because I wasn't satisfied with my art. I started exploring and decided to take a realistic approach to my art as well as using color, which I had never done before. I taught myself to draw portraits from a book I had picked up and it wasn't long before I felt confident that I could stop practicing and start actually making art. I had been practicing in black and grey so I was nervous to draw my first piece in color, but success! My first color piece was of Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. (you can see it in my gallery if you like) its been years now since I first started drawing my portraits and I feel like I have come a long way although I feel like I am very much in my early stages as well. Every piece I strive to take myself further.
