    Hi all! After months of doubting and questioning my artistic abilities, I decided to join NMA because as a beginner, why not!?

    I loved drawing for a multitude of reasons back when I was a kid. I was heavily inspired by manga drawings from Naoko Takeuchi and Akira Toriyama, two inspirational anime pioneers that I credit heavily for my interest in art. My brother made great little cartoons and my uncle was a great painter who sold majority of his paintings, I strongly believe artistic creativity is my calling since I am pursuing in the UI and graphics arts sector as a career in the future.

    I randomly stopped drawing in my teens and years later now that I’m officially an adult, I decided to make it my hobby and my dream to become a fantastic artist by practicing, learning, and continuously learning and trying all kinds of mediums, from graphite, ink, to paint.

    At this point, I am in my infant stage and I see the potential in me to become a great artist. I believe NMA will help me break out of being scared of perfectionism in art and mold me into a better, polished artist!

    My inspirations are Kentaro Miura, Junji Ito, Caravaggio, Leonardo da Vinci, Masayuki Taguchi, and Vincent Van Gogh.

    Here is my first head sketch study!:

    Hello! I’m Katie, I’ve been an artist all my life and I currently work as an elementary art teacher. I just joined NMA to work on my personal artwork by increasing my skills as an artist. I’m really interested in landscape painting with gouache and acrylics. I decided to start with this drawing course to brush up on a few skills before diving into more intense painting courses. Excited to get started!
