My name is Melody Goebel. I live in Southern California and am a college student. My main career goal is to be excepted into the Marist University in Italy for a Master's degree in Art Restoration and Conservation and go from there.
I am a professional artist. Also, I'm a needlewoman and designer. As for being an artist, I am self taught. I learned through studying Leonardo da Vinci's notebooks; sifting through over 2,400 folio pages to find any instruction on drawing and painting. I have been drawing for over 12 years and would love to expand into oils and tempera paint. Once I began applying da Vinci's teachings I noticed a dramatic improvement in my art.
As a needlewoman, I do knitting, crochet, tatting, cross-stitch, amigurumi and clothes. Where my talent in needlework s concerned I have my great grandmother to thank fr that, as she was a professional seamstress who was in large demand with Atlanta Georgia's wealthy patrons.
For designing I create fashion concepts to be used either for fashion design or to be used in artwork. My designs are the lesser of my hobbies, its simply for my own enjoyment.
