It might seem odd as I was already painting too much; but I had another purpose now: I would make videos about my painting process, I would publish them, and that would allow me to paint my own subjects. Not my customer’s pets.
Having a YouTube channel encouraged me to pursue my creative ideas. Soon I was painting landscapes, human portraits, trying watercolours, oils, gouache, I would keep sketchbooks, I would paint in plein air… And also, I would teach.
So, this is where I am now. Cindy, no art studies, no galleries, no exhibitions, no awards, and yet living from what I have been creating since 2011. Growing my online presence through social media allowed me to create this activity and probably to join the Unison Colour family. Being an Associate Artist means the world to me, as I fell in love with Unison Colour pastels many years ago and they are by far my favourites; and as soft pastel will always stay my first and dearest art love. It is my great delight and honour to be part of such a wonderful brand.
