I discovered my drive and ability for drawing and painting in late 2014, but didn’t take it seriously until beginning of 2018, when during a course of long hospitalisation, I created a series of colour pencil portraits from the staff and nurses looking after me. Since then it has become a major part of my day to day life so much that I now consider myself an almost ex-scientist moving towards becoming a full-time artist in near future.
I love experiencing different media, but coloured pencils have been, and always will be my top favourite media. I love them specially for drawing portraits, although I have been using them delightfully for animals, flowers and landscapes as well.
I am yet to win any awards, but my paintings and drawings have been exhibited in several exhibitions and one of my drawings, "The Youngest of All" is being published in colour magazine.
