My name is Amber. I started to learn how to draw recently. I did not learn art since childhood nor did I draw for very long. My degree and my work are unrelated to art but I enjoyed drawing and I want to become a professional artist.
Experience and Contributions in the Arts and Performing Arts
I have been an artist for most of my life.
I am currently working on writing and illustrating for books.
Story and artwork from Paulina Cancio
I have been drawing since I was little and I’ve always had a passion for it. Art is something I want to pursue as a career but it’s hard for me to seek out how to advance in my art by myself. I want to learn how to draw from my mind and create characters that are proportional so that I can one day create a comic and perhaps start animating.

The following drawing is a study made using graphite of a work by the artist John Lawn.

Story and artwork from Archanaa Panda
An erstwhile software professional, I, Archanaa Panda (from India), left my high-income job to pursue fine arts, after the death of my beloved father. I now live a much more stress-free and healthy life dedicated to improving my knowledge concentrating on portraiture and figure drawing / painting.

Story and artwork from Tanisha
Hi! Like many other contestants here, I am a self-taught artist, who’s been dabbling in arts and crafts ever since I can remember. It’s always been a hobby and a passion of mine, but since I never learned the basics, I lack the fundamentals of creating a good piece.
