Hi Andrea! Nice to have you here!
Tell us something about yourself in your own words!
I’m a self taught artist, that enjoy creating magical and unique manipulations, that allow to share my vision with the world.
How did you get started in the field of digital art?
I started with my own pictures, trying to make them better, then I found deviantart and I saw all the amazing things people create, and I decided to give it a try, so I follow some tutorials, and then with time I develop my own style and technique.
Well I started in 2009, I discover photoshop and ever since I keep learning more and more about this art.
What is the stem of your inspiration? Do you have any favourite artist in particular?
My inspiration usually is music, I love to listen to music while I’m creating my images, my favorite artist is my husband who’s also very creative in photoshop, he help me a lot to improve my techniques and make my art better, I’m always grateful that I can share the pleasure of creating arts with him.
How much time do you usually spend for creating a single piece of art?
That depends of the idea and concept of the art, sometimes I can make it in a day, sometimes can take a week or more. So really depends of what you want to accomplish with the piece. Each one is different.
Which of your artwork are you most fond of ? Why?
Some of them have special meaning to me because they express my feelings at the moment, and others because I made them with my husband. But in every art I made I share a piece of me with all of you, therefore I love all of them.
Beside digital art, what else do you love to do?
I love to photography, this is something new Im doing right now, and works great with me because I can always bring out the best of my pictures with my skills in photoshop. I also love to model.
Thank you for your time! Lastly, any advice would you love to give to the beginners?
My advice is that you have to give the best of you in every art, and never ever give up, the road may be a little difficult but with a lot of practice you will made it. So if you want to be a great artist practice a lot and you will see how your arts keep getting better with time.
