What is Twisted Torchlight?

 Hello and welcome to Twisted Torchlight. My name is Monika and I have been doing art for the last ten years in an on again, off again manner. My first love was writing, and I am proud to say I am a published author. You can find much of my work located at http://allpoetry.com/MotherMachineGunn. I have my third book of poetry in the making as well. So needless to say, it has been a busy two years or so, and I have not had much time to update the site. Please bare with me, and I will get it going as soon as possible. I know several of you have seen this site under construction for more than a year. I apologize. 

Moving on...

I originally created this site for other artist or enthusiasts to come and get a little inspiration, as well as to have a place to showcase my pieces. As of late, I am moving more in the direction of letting people know that there is art in everything! I think I want to stress more than anything that, you don't exactly need to be able to draw or paint a straight line to be an artist. I talk to so many people who are always saying " I love what you do, I wish I could draw" And let me tell you... I can't. Art for me is an outlet, sort of an outcry of emotion and I find that people respond to it, because it is real and raw. I urge every person who comes across this to go out, buy the cheapest canvas you can and some cheap arts and crafts paint (acrylic) and just go to town. It may be a mess, it may be strewn colors and it may be a personal masterpiece. 

 Which leads me to...

I would love to see your art! E-mail your photos!! 


With that being said... I would also like to thank the few of you who OH SO PATIENTLY waited for me to get the "Poetry Blog" in order. I finally got all the Allpoetry pieces moved over here. No short task, I might add...

Again, I would like to welcome and thank all the appropriate people. Enjoy your browse on my site!!!
