Hello everyone, I am Agnes and I want to share my assignments here so you can give me feedbacks and suggestions to help me develop in art. English is not my mother language so pls forgive me for mistakes.
A little bit about me...
Art was always part of my life, early in my nursery years I took part in art competitions, and later in the first 4 years at primary school I learned in a special art class . After that I changed to a 8 years long high school (I am not sure about how this called in us/uk, but we have this type of school in Hungary) where they provided higher quality education in every field except in art haha :). I was always really good at drawing and learning also. I thought that I wouldn't be able to make a living from art, so I decided to put art in the background and focused on IT and science. So I went to university and I became an agricultural engineer. During these years I have joined an art group and I have had art as a hobby and I have painted a lot with oil on canvas.
When I finished my studies at university I started to work as a graphic designer, learned to use Corel and Adobe products and I have been working for 10 years as a freelancer as a second job. Meanwhile I had other jobs but I have not enjoyed any of them as they wasn't related to art.
Last year one of my old friend asked me a question.
"Why don't you try digital painting?"
I really missed painting, you know... I am designing graphics for advertisements, promotions, branding - but that's not the same. So I bought a wacom intuos S, started to learn digital painting and now after 6 months here I am. I want to be an artist, that is finally clear for me. I want to learn and develop as many of you guys.
Last year I have turned 30, I have a small children also, so I know that I am a little bit late and the clock is ticking. I am trying to do my best with all the free time I have.
I hope that life will give me the chance to work as a digital artist in the future.
Best wishes for you!
