I got chatting on instagram with a lovely lady who has a really awesome art Etsy shop (link here), she gave me some pointers and one of them was to do an about me section on my shop. I thought I would share it here too!
So I want to tell you a little about myself. I am from Colombia and moved to the UK when I was 9 years old. Having grown up in one of the most beautiful countries has influenced me greatly. Since I was a small child I have drawn because I loved it. My mum tells me that when I was little a friend of hers told me that one day I could grow up to be an artist and I was perplexed and told her, Im already an artist. So being an artist is very much what Im about and what I wanted to learn in university.
However I was also a massive book worm and I came across environmental books that talked about deforestation and greenhouse gases, so I decided to study something at uni that would help me save the planet. That turned out to be environmental science and I learnt so much and met many wonderful people. I graduated and I realised that my passion is not only trying to make positive change but also Im still an artist. So I married the two, which is why I try that every piece that I sell on etsy has a message. From things that have positive impact to the planet such as cycling to promoting zero waste options such as bars of soap!
