Well, I found her work quite astonishing: creative, colorful and very expressive.
Here is the work of the girlcansmile!
Are you using Photoshop, if yes which version? If not,if you use any other illustration tool please let me know.
I do use Photoshop. I use both traditional and digital paint in my work, and I digitally paint with Photoshop CS6 and Corel Painter.
Are you a professional artist?
I’m new with showing my work, I been painting since I was a child but havent taken the step to show others outside of my family and friends until recently, so I do not make a living with my art. I also don’t have a website or actually showing my work anywhere but my little deviantart page.
What kind of artworks do you fancy to draw?
My favorite subject to paint is contrasts, balance acts. The strength in the fall down, the disturbingly beautiful, the light in the dark, the twisted fairy tale. Life is never just black and white. Of course it’s butterfly kisses and strawberry fields as well, but not just that. Sometimes the storm will come in and make everything wet and uncomfortable. I like honesty in my work, and sometimes the truth can hurt.
Can you please explain a little about yourself, and where do you come from?
I grew up in the countryside, and that has inspired me greatly. The countryside is the most beautiful place on earth but it’s also raw in a way not everyone appreciates. My childhood wasn’t easy but I was always amazingly loved and I learned early that sometimes you have to learn to smile through the tears or not smile at all.
Do you think it’s possible to describe the process of your art style, what are the does and don’t, the important aspects you set yourself to achieve your style of design?
I think the process of my painting is that I honestly don’t have one. Sometimes I will have an idea so thought out that it’s a complete picture in my head already, then I just follow that image and let it speak. Sometimes I have no idea where a picture will lead me and just follow a mood, a sensation, a faded idea in the horizon. I think it’s important to let the paintbrush talk, I found it tends to have an almost eerie connection to both your heart and brain.
For your Designs, do you start manually the sketches or do you start straight with the software?
I tend to start with a sketch, often I get ideas when I’m outside so I bring my sketchbook with me. I can be on the bus and an idea will talk to me so I do a rough sketch, and later I will either keep working on it with traditional media or I will make it digital, and often I will do both.
What is your dream for the next five years?
My dream with my art is that I can overcome my shyness and not let anything be the focus but the painting. That I can do it full-time without limitations and that i stay true to my own vision.
