Art has always been a love of mine; I simply love aesthetics, the superb combination of shapes and lights and colors in nature all around. Visual arts have specifically been my main interest, but I tried many forms of art and crafts. I used to like making friendship bracelets and crocheting, live action photography, tried acting a few times and even had a few years when I was writing a lot. Because I simply enjoyed creating, giving life to ideas and thought, transforming the energetic impulses from my brain into something material.
But the only form of art that stuck with me through the ages is drawing. Ever since I can remember, I've been drawing. Everyone around me told me that I have a natural talent at it and encouraged me. I have never taken any classes. I always looked around me carefully, stared at objects for hours, watched the artworks of other artists, and that’s how I learned how to draw. No one ever taught me anything. Truth be told, I don’t think anyone can ever tell you how to look at things so you can understand how they are constructed. You either get it or not, you feel it somewhere inside you as you create every time.
A pencil and a sheet of paper will follow me everywhere I go, because drawing helps me concentrate and pay more attention to everything around. It also helps me relax or retreat myself in a world of my own reality.
I also love digital art, making photomanipulations.
I’m currently studying on my own digital painting. And I find it very difficult. I used to simply look at a traditional painting of any artist, famous painter or local artisan, and I simply understood the technique. But now, when I look at digital paintings, I find it really hard to fully understand how someone did it. But I love it, and I can’t wait to get better at it.
