I'm Ala Lockhart. 

I like to think of myself as a hands-on artist with a strong sense of color and an even stronger sense of self-worth. While studying at The Fashion Institute of Technology, I developed my skills to find creative solutions to a range of projects. I live in Mount Vernon, New York, and use my experience to produce polished, attention-grabbing designs. In my spare time, you can find me building playlists and trying new recipes.

My Logo.

Trying to condense myself into a single symbol was difficult. I tried to incorporate elements of art akin to a pencil or stylus. I wanted to steer clear of fitting too many details into a single shape. I opted for a sleek and maybe a bit abstract styled "A". Imagining a pencil tilted forward, I combined both sharp and round facets while still keeping the same general frame of my previous design.

There's a lot of pressure to produce art daily for likes and followers.

Neither of which is an accurate measurement of a person's skill or success. There are some artists out there who do benefit from a routine and learn well from daily drawing exercises, but some artists - including myself - may find this approach stressful. Everyone takes different steps on the path to improvement. Make art you love and make it at your own pace.
