Do you give your art as a gift to family and friends?
Yes, I do sometimes give my art as a gift to family and friends. I also give my art to charities. It’s either sold at a fixed price or at auction and all the money goes to the charities. It makes me feel very happy for creating art for a good cause.
What painting are you most proud of this year?
I have done a digital illustration painting and submitted it for an International Competition this year. I am proud that I was Long Short Listed Artist for ” The Global Fashion Illustration & Drawing Award 2021 @ FIDA WORLDWIDE.
Where are you planning to spend Christmas this year?
Because of the pandemic, I decided not to plan too early as the last year my plans didn’t work out. Probably I will be with friends and zoom meeting with my family as they live outside the UK.
What inspiration do you get from the festive season?
I get inspired by hand-made art and craft things in Christmas markets. Also, festive smells evoke some emotions and mind and I get inspired at this time of the year.
