For years I've been self taught, with the cheapest supplies I learned more about art than I could hoped for. Continuing my education with art and design my love for creativity grew. I went from searching, learning, experimenting to finding my favourite media. For a long time I wasn't sure what I was good at, but finding my imagination and expressing myself through it helped me get through the day. I have no specific type of passion when it comes to making art, I label myself as a 'mix media artist', watercolour, oil, acrylic, gouache, ink, pen, pencil, pastels, clay, digital, photography, photoshop, etc. I come and go with my passion. It was just last year that I decided to take my art to the next level and show it to the public rather than just keeping the personal to myself and my art teacher. Over the years I've been making art for myself, friends and family, but knowing that if I wished for having my own art business some day I would have to start displaying to strangers and selling. As the years past I grew comfortable with experimenting on different techniques that I would put to the side. By uploading to my Instagram @koariekaart I don't split up the art that's meant for either me, a specific person, random people, the art that I am proud of and the art I want to throw away. My room has become my studio. Its small, messy and the air is on the down low. But I make the best of it. Hopefully in future I'll be lucky enough to get extra space to call my art studio.
Lets be real no one reads this, the paragraphs are always long and you don't want to read about how someone came to become an artists and ended up finding this website and decided to test it out all because they made a terrible cake and found a leaf on the side walk while walking their cat. But if you did stay this long, I am happy that you found my art good enough for you to be interested in my background. Let me just say : Hi, how are you? Do you like my profile picture? Can you spot me behind all those flowers? I'm not gonna force you but I would like to ask you if you would be so kind as to at least check out my Instagram account and maybe, give me a follow? no pressure I wont know. Contact me? If you do.
Thank you for your time. Buy my art. I need the money.
