Nadine Lowe, Kaiserslautern Member Since June 2011 Artist Statement My name is Nadine Lowe, also known under Akyashaa or Lady Akyashaa. Hence the name for my website: AFW Designs stands for Akyashaa's Fantasy Works and Designs. I just want to introduce myself in this way and give you a little insight on the artist behind the work :)
It has always been a goal of mine, to one day be able to show the world my vision. Even as a child I can remember that I was always drawing and letting my imagination free reign. Through practicing for years, I have developed my own style. I work in different medias, my favorites are 3D fantasy artwork and pencil work.
I was born on 3rd of April 1984 in the beautiful town of Kaiserslautern in the south west part of Germany and grew up in a great and loving family who always encouraged my drawing. In school I was always my art teachers favorite but never really took the art out of the class room.
I started to compete in equine events and still ride horses today. My art is greatly influenced by horses, as you can tell I am sure. I also have other interests such as motorsports and racing, as well as computers and gaming.
Then about 9 years ago I got introduced to a program called Photoshop and I started playing around with it some. I got back into the wonderful world of Art, and taught myself how to use Photoshop which took quite a while to be honest. I slowly started improving and I really enjoy it to this day. I also use Poser to create my 3D pieces, alont with a tablet to help me draw.
