Who is Tonja?

I was recently featured in Comstock’s Magazine. Click the photo below to take a look. 

I'm Tonja. While I have always been creative, crafty, artsy... it was a bit later in my life when I discovered my love of painting. In 2010 I decided I wanted to learn to paint so I bought a bunch of supplies and started watching videos. I like to use a variety of medium including, graphite pencils, colored pencil, ink pens, markers and acrylic paint but it is watercolor that speaks to me. It's soothing and it suits me. I hope it speaks to you too!  

I'm a fan of random facts so here are a few of mine:
