year of birth: 1982
Q1: When did you start making art?
When I was a little girl, my mom was drawing for me. It was like magic, she was creating new worlds and people just in front of my eyes. I wanted to do the same. I started to struggle with pencils, learning how to hold them, how to use them, how to create new worlds on the paper. Pencils seemed better than toys.
Q2: What does inspire you?
There are many things that inspire me: other artists, music, books. But the strongest inspirations are feelings, at least I think so. It’s hard to describe that, but they give me energy to draw, they make me more creative.
Q3: What are your techniques?
I mainly do works with graphite or colored pencils (usually mix both). But I like to work with acrylics and oils too.
Q4: What is the main idea or feeling behind your works?
I’m usually in need of drawing women. Usually they are alone and distanced, sometimes sad or immersed in thoughts. Still they are always strong and self-confident, with deep connection to the nature.
Q5: What is the main color of your art and why?
I always match main colors with a subject. I like to use dark tones, but I’m not afraid to use strong, bright colors if they’re needed.
Q6: What would you improve about your work and why?
Oh, the answer is simple: everything! But seriously, I want to be more self-confident when it comes to my works. I can see that my tenses and stresses influent my art a lot. I would like to change that.
Q7: Do you have any project for the future?
I don’t make plans. Usually, when I finish one work, I have many new ideas on doing something different. I like that flow.
Q8: Describe yourself with 3 words capturing the essence of MyDoodle.
Imagination is freedom.
Q9: Show us (link) your very first work. Describe it from techniques till feelings.
My very first work doesn’t exist on the web. I’m never satisfied with my works, so I often remove the ones I don’t like from the Internet and upload new to my portfolios. But I can say it was black and white and very ill draw. The oldest work I can show you is this one HERE.
Q10: What did change from your first work till now?
Everything. All my skills have changed, attitude towards my work, dreams of what I want to achieve. My art keeps changing with me.
Q11: What is art for you? Escaping from reality or the essence of life?
I could say both. And much more. It is piece of me. I need it.
