I'm a confused human being who is trying to figure out how to process the outer world...And one of my favourite ways is drawing. Drawing my surroundings, nature, other people, characters and fanatasy scenarios puts me at ease when I get too overwhelmed. Drawing helps me remember, express my thoughts and see things differently. DeviantArt, despite its many flaws has been the only internet place where I feel like I can really enjoy finding new art and sharing my own.

I love digital and traditional art alike and I like to switch between different mediums often. My most favorite at the moment:


  • Paint Tool SAI 2015 Icon -> Paint Tool SAI

  • Watercolour Icon -> Watercolors

  • Dip pen Icon -> Ink

  • :cute pencil: -> Graphite pencils

When I was a little kid I loved learning about animals and the natural world and, naturally, I also loved to draw such stuff as well. Things seemed so simple to me back then - I had a sense of what's right and wrong and what I want to become when I grow up (an environmentalist/biologist). But as time passed I got caught up in my self-doubt cycles and for some years now I've had a lot of trouble just percieving my surroundings without filter and judgement. I go hiking in the forest and instead of enjoying the beauty I am constantly overanalyzing. My hopes and aspirations for the future right now are to just have some clarity and calmness to allow me to focus on things that really matter instead of the petty little troubles that will soon be forgotten..

When I'm not sulking or busy I enjoy caring for plants (especially herbs and little flowers), trying new recipes in the kitchen and playing games. I also find joy in making journals, writing long lists and plans which I take forever to complete, haha
