I am a self-taught artist passionate about sharing tips and ideas that I have learnt from others and on my own. I love sketching/painting in Oil/Watercolours/Acrylic. I love art and making art, reading, meditating and enjoying nature. Love for nature drives my art and my sketching processes. Being immersed in art continuously is what my dream life is. My favourite artist is Van Gogh and Monet from who I draw currently most of my inspiration.
