I’ve always loved drawing but I did it for myself in my spare time. I had a kid when I was very young so I couldn’t study arts when I was younger. Now that my daughter is grown up I’ve started art studies and I feel very happy to do so.
PAINTING IS MY PASSION!
I’m a woman, 71 years of age, and have been painting seriously since I was 14 years old. I adore painting and drawing, always have, always will, and art is the major passion in my life. I’ve been privileged to be able to sell a few dozen or more of my paintings, and I get the biggest thrill when people want my work and tell me that they love it.

Artwork by Zilahi Nono
My nickname is Zilahi Nono and I was born in the very heart of Transylvania, namely Cluj-Napoca or Kolozsvár as we like to call it. My major is in Graphic Design, completed at the Art and Design University of Cluj-Napoca.
As a Graphical artist I profess that the work of a Graphical is the most colorful, the most varied, most creative profession in the World! I’ve tried so many areas that I master: drawing, themes, marketing materials, desktop publishing, book cover designing, illustrating, films posters, etc. Being a graphical artist is an exciting profession and as a graphic I experience daily the inimitable process of creation.
Just Accident or Not?
An accident, yes an accident led me to be where l am today. I was born with severe health complications so that the only places I went was the doctors office, hospital and home. The only thing take with me or get a hold of was paper and a pencil or pen, so naturally I started drawing.
I am 72 years old. I have a masters degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis on Sculpture. After bouncing around the world as a surfer and being a self employed cabinet maker, I returned to my first love, Sculpture. I have had a 30 year career as a sculptor. I displayed my sculpture at the Festival Of Arts in Laguna Beach. One year I displayed a sculptural waterwall. I was taken aback by the interest it received. It was chosen for purchase by the Festival Of Arts for it’s permanent collection. The next summer, it is an 8 week show every summer, I decided to show another water feature along with my sculpture. With a family to support and a public hungry for water features and “feng shui”, I was discovering this a viable way to earn a living as an artist.
Getting back into drawing – hear me roar!
I am a recently new stay at home mom. I had been a workaholic and am finally taking time off to recalibrate my life’s goals. I finally picked up drawing again after many years of hiatus (aka since pretty much high school, and that was decades ago). Work was rather hectic before and one day, in an effort to de-stress and I decided to open up the watercolor kit my wonderful husband bought for my birthday nearly 2 years prior.
Niluh Sudarti is an Indonesian female painter. Niluh feels strong connection between Art and Spiritualism. She believes that Art and Spiritualism are intersects with the existence of Love and Life.
There is joys and gratefulness she found on Art, therefore there is such no challenge other than simply enjoying the process. Art is like being in the moment, forever. Eternally.
Story from Maryam Seyedi Zade
I’m a social science student who loves art but lives in a country that does not care about artists, so I draw for my heart cause there is no money, fame or respect for a poor Artist in where I live.
There are lot’s of challenges that I have to face art supplies are very expensive and there isn’t even a good store or art class near where I live, so have to work part time jobs to pay for supplies and travel two hours and a half to find a store for what I need.
