"The soul becomes dyed with the colors of its thoughts." -Marcus Aurelius-

My story started in 2015 when after 11 years of taking care of our kids I finally had some time for a hobby of my own. I had drawn throughout my childhood and high school years but entering university, I had to concentrate on my studies. For years and years I was afraid to even touch a pen, I thought all creativity and artistic talent had just evaporated into years filled with studying, work, diapers and sleepless nights. I was so afraid of failing. Finally, one day while shopping for a book for my son I saw this beautiful and colorful set of soft pastels. I had never painted with pastels but I picked up the set and paper thinking I could try. And at least the kids could use them. I was immediately mesmerized by the richness of the colors, how you could use your fingers to make these smooth transitions and blends! I was hooked. Watercolor painting has now become another favorite art media because it is such a wild media to master, always challenging me to learn something new. And now, I am in love with colors and making art! I hope I can spread my joy of creativity through prints of my favorite pieces! Enjoy!
