I started my art journey about 2 years ago. I was very naive, and because it happened very natural, I didn’t have many plans or clear ideas about what I wanted to do. I was just playing, experimenting, and for the first time in my life, thinking that I can actually paint.
What I didn’t expect was the reaction I got from the people around me, my friends and my family. They didn’t understand what I was doing and why I wasn’t ‘normal’ anymore. They wanted to protect me, to keep me safe. But it was tough, I had to stand up for myself in ways I have never done before.
And at times I broke down. In tears. Wondering if I should just quit and go have a ‘normal’ life. •
The question I was asked the most was: ‘Aren’t you bored’ And the truth is that I was bored sometimes. Running a business alone from our guest bedroom is not really the most glamorous thing. •
But again, I was missing the point. It was not about being busy, having a lot of people around and growing a successful business. I had already done that. And it led me to a breakdown. •
It was about discovering myself. Discovering who I am alone. Because painting and running a solo business does just that.
My art journey revealed all the hidden things in myself, took away all the veils. There was nowhere to hide. At first it was intense. Then it got smoother, I got used to my dark sides, to my shadows, to my fears. I found out so many things about me, and I feel more complete.
Now, when I occasionally get asked: ‘and you don’t get bored’ I just answer ‘No’. Without really feeling the need to justify it anymore. And then I just smile.

Early Malaysia National Day on Aug31🇲🇾 Plagiarism includes many cases and one of it is using the artist's artwork without giving credit
An artist's artwork is just like a piece of the artist himself What would it feel like to have a piece of yourself being stolen and still the stealer doesn't think there's a problem with it
To the ones who plagiarised, I hope you know what you've done and ONLY THEN thank the artists for their work .
Thanks for reading this crap :)
FYI yes I do draw digital art ,the last one was since last year Nov I think

Our bedroom is quickly becoming one of my favorite spots because while Rob has the office/guest bedroom, I have the nook in our bedroom (more photos to come). ▫️
I’ve brought in a couple stacks of books because ever since I was young being surrounded by books has brought me a certain peace. Books are scattered through the house waiting for the shelves which will one day house them.. just because things aren’t perfect doesn’t mean you can’t be surrounded by what makes your heart happy ♥️ ▫️
My mom taught me you work with the pieces you have, then slowly add to them - this keeps things unique and keeps your space from looking like it was decorated by a brand versus a human.
