Wow, so I haven't had any chance of being able to move all at once. I apologize I haven't posted anything at ALL. :( I'm much more active on my Instagram page if you're interested in keeping up with my current work. I don't think I will be posting anything for a little while especially considering the resolution of my phone. I might do a test post, but I don't really have a budget to work with to continue posting (I feel like I should be posting high quality high res images, but I can't) As soon as I can I will be purchasing a really nice scanner/printer and start seriously posting things online. But for now, all my artwork is being posted directly from my phone with picture editing apps :,( I know I don't have many followers anyway (This page is really new too haha) but I just wanted to send an update and let you know I am aware that I have this page but I just really don't have the resources to really make it what I want it to be, hence the abandonment. But I am certain that things will be changing moving forward. Thank you.
Hello small group of watchers <3

I hate to say this, but I'm definitely going to be out of commission for my watercolor projects. I have some marker projects and pencil drawings I'll be able to post soon, but I just don't have the time right now with me moving out of my place. It's an emotional and literal mess with all of my belongings right now... Please expect more posts and high resolution images during the summer. I've got some good stuff coming up I promise xoxo.
I'm going to try to update some of the images I post as I build the page, bear with me kids. <3


NellyRArt's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
My name is Nelly Rodriguez. I am a Hispanic-American woman with some art college experience on me and 10+ years of experience, including a few commissions. I’m working on trying to complete my art degree in Communication Arts, (Essentially Commercial Illustration).

A little background-as a child, I loved making art in and outside of school and I started to draw a lot when I started middle school. One of the more defining points in my artistic journey was when I discovered Japanese Comics (Manga). I loved the illustration style that I got so hooked, I began to trace them and draw them on my own. As I got better, I began to draw outside of that style, and started to draw anything I could. I never really realized that it would be a passion of mine, or anything I would ever get good at or try to pursue as a career until I finished my freshman year of high school. I got a lot of praise from my peers and it felt good to be recognized for something I could create on my own.

I graduated High School – with an Advanced Studies Diploma and a medal from the art department recognizing my talents. After, I was accepted into Virginia Commonwealth University for the Arts. It was there that I started to learn how to take art seriously and begin delving into the world of graphic design and illustration. It was so exhilarating to see how little amount of time it took to see my art start to look crisp, and well thought out. I learned so much in the short amount of time I was there, and was so excited to begin a career.

Unfortunately after about 2 years, I dropped out for personal and financial reasons and have been trying my hardest to get back on track. I never stopped making art, and knew that I’d go back and finish my degree.

I like to have a wide variety of art skills, but my most predominate talents lie in drawing, inks, and watercolor…and occasionally colored pencil. I don’t exactly have a specialization yet, but if I had to choose a few adjectives to describe it, they would be feminine, happy, illustrative, and colorful. I do like to try new things all the time, so you will see things that will fall outside of that description. I am working on creating a few series illustrations pertaining to topics that are important to me and hopefully will be something everyone can take in and share.

Recently I have discovered that I don’t really see myself doing anything other than making art for a living. It’s something I have a passion for, something I am good at, and something that I think comes naturally to me. It can be very discouraging to be in the world of art to see so many people with talent. But I’ve learned that instead of putting myself down about it, it was time to step up to the plate and learn from my mistakes and believe that I can put something of myself out there and share it with the world. I hope I can reflect that in my art and make something of it. Please look forward to my art as there are many ideas and projects to come. I hope that I can also get as much input as possible while I continue to flourish as an artist.

Thanks for reading!
