In addition to drawing, she also enjoys taking photos of friends and improving them or creating fantasy photos with a photo editing program. Eve’s inspiration comes from nature and people. Her first works of art were of flowers and birds. She is exploring other 2D media, including painting and digital photography.
Art Under Glass Series: Artist Janice Walrafen creates handmade decorative relief tile, murals, and sculptures from clay.
