I’ve always drawn whatever piqued my attention, and I’ve taught myself how to create cartoon characters freehand since I was a child. But because I lacked the creative ability to translate my mental image onto the canvas with watercolor (the recommended approach), I resorted to photography.
With today’s technology, I can convert a photograph into a painting. Nonetheless, during the pandemic, I retaught myself how to paint and sold my first digital oil painting, followed by a watercolor painting translated into cosmetic bags.
So painting and photography are my outlets for expressing myself and sharing my world through my eyes.
