They say mom knows best, and in my case, she did when she bought me a watercolor kit back in 2009. I was 14 year olds back then; time flies! Growing up, I used to go out in nature and enjoy looking at things. Then one day, mom bought me a camera. From there, I took pictures of what I wanted to paint and grew a lot more. She really does know best!
People have been saying to me for years, “Wow, I LOOOOOVE your work, you should go out there and sell it!” Well one day, I got tired and did just that. Sometimes, the best teachers are yourself because you get to learn your own techniques. That’s why I’m a self-taught watercolor artist.
When I paint, I get so caught up in my work that time doesn’t seem to exist. I try to make paintings that show the complexity and beauty of nature in a simplified way.
