Happy New Year!

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 31, 2016, 4:27 PM
Whether you watch me or are just passing by, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and I want to wish you a very Happy New Year 2017!

This has been a very productive year for me. I joined two art collectives, became a regular participant at Sketchfest, and completed the entire Inktober challenge (which was not easy but fun nevertheless). I've also done quite a bit of traveling, which isn't typical of me. Below are some of my pieces from this year:

Farewell, 2016! by MJWilliam

Thank you for all your support throughout the year. It humbles and inspires me to know that my work is interesting enough for 3,246 people to have followed me. I might not be on here that often these days, but I appreciate every single watch, fave, and comment. If you want to follow me on my other social media, the links are below.

Happy New Year, and may it bring you all love, peace, and limitless creativity.

Maria J. William
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art

Hi there, and welcome to my gallery! I'm a self-taught artist/illustrator. I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, and have been doing art professionally for about 15 years. My work is mostly traditional portraiture with fantasy elements. I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband, our two young sons, a trusty feline sidekick, and more books and movies than we have room for. I love to write, take photos, cook, ride horses, and play a delicious profusion of violent videogames. If you want to know more, please visit my site at

Thanks for looking, and alons-y!
