hi im Darlee, I'm from the Philippines and happily married to a dutch man.. I am a self taught artist. i always dream to be a professional artist. I already finished my bachelors degree in international relations which i dont have the passion with it. I was already in love with arts since i was 5, There were several artworkshops in my hometown during that time, but my parents dont have the funds to let me join it, so what i always do is to secretly watch them through the window and bring my own paper and pencil. It was a heartbreaking somehow looking at those other kids having nice set of colors, but that made me love art more. It was never easy for me with my journey in art, when i was college i sometimes skip food just to save money for me to buy my own sketch pad and pencils, and i do it secretly without my parents knowing it, before it comes a discussion, because my mom says its a waste of money.. hehe.. And as time goes by i finally made my parents understand me, and now i have their full support and praise in my works. all the trials and disappointments that i have been through with arts made me more stronger and love it even more. currently since i dont have the funds to take a degree in arts, i am taking all the chance to practice to create more colorful artworks. and hopefully time will come it will be my proffession. .
