Hello and welcome to my Pencil Art Drawings website. My name is Manisha and I’m a self taught artist who discovered the love for charcoal pencil drawings in 2011.

Although I always liked to draw whenever I had a pencil in my hand, I never took it seriously until now.

I was born and raised in the beautiful tropical island of Sri Lanka and now I live in Wisconsin, USA.

I learned to do water color paintings when I was small, may be around 6 years old. Then school, work and life took over my time. After I got married to the love of my life, I moved to the States and started my own website design and online marketing company – so that I can work from home.

One day in April 2011, I was too stressed with work and wanted a break, other than watching TV! I started drawing my Golden Retriever… posted on Facebook and suddenly got all these nice comments from my friends and family on how good the drawing was. This made me want to draw more and more. More I improved, more time it took for each drawing. To get it more realistic than the previous drawing. Experimenting with new techniques and watching a lot of YouTube videos.

My husband being the supportive guy he is, always encouraged me to keep going even when some drawings don’t turn out like I want them to. It does get frustrating at times when you spend around 10 hours on a drawing and don’t get the final result you want.

I try to draw whenever I can find some time. I hope I will be a great realistic drawing artist one day (hopefully soon!)

Thank you for taking the time to go through my pencil drawings.
