I'm not entirely sure how I came to be an artist. All I know is my parents took me to some private art lessons which mainly consisted of watercolours. I was 10 years old at the time. I thought it was a bit strange as neither of them were really into the arts themselves. To this day, I still have no real idea why they did it.
Thankfully, that didn't stop them from letting me realise my dream. By the time I reached high school, my artistic prowess was calling - I enrolled into art class. Sadly, my parents had other ideas for my future and decided one year of art classes was enough for me and made sure I took mathematics and science lessons instead.
After nearly 20 years of trying to impress my parents with little success, I eventually walked down the path I wanted to and picked up some brushes and paints. While watercolour was no longer in my sights, I loved landscape painting in acrylics instead. At the same time, I also discovered my love for graphite drawing and that I was actually good at it. I'm also loving the art of coloured drawing and learning new things every day.
