cocochan03031998: Hi, I really admire your artworks, they're so creative and inspiring! I'm a secondary school student in Hong Kong, I have to study your art for my art portfolio on "Identity". What are you trying to show through your art? Which piece do you think shows the most of your identity?

Hiii, firstly this makes my whole week! Thankyou lovely, so floored and flattered that you want to study my art, seriously that’s so cool. 

I find this identity question really difficult because I’m still growing and learning (not that I ever want to stop) but I’m still just starting to figure out my ‘identity’ as an artist. I think lately I’m aiming to show liveliness, movement and curiosity in my work. Right now these two stand out as pieces I’ve really enjoyed, x and x.

I hope this was helpful and do share how you go with your study! xx

Anonymous: hey i also do watercolour painting and struggle with finding notepads etc thats suitable for my paintings. what notepads and paper do you use when you paint?

Hey lovely! 
For little paintings and just to get ideas down I usually use a moleskine watercolour journal, which I love and will continue to keep re purchasing. For larger finished pieces I usually use Arches 300gsm smooth paper. 
They are a little pricey but it’s just what suits me and what I’m comfortable with.
I reccomend playing around with different textures and weights till you find what suits you, but always make sure the paper/notepad is specific to a watercolour medium :)

Have a lovely day and I hope this helped! xx

Anonymous: what brushes do you use/recommend? :)

Hi I haven’t invested too much in brushes yet as I end up mistreating them hehe, but I’ve recently bought a couple of winsor & newton ones that are real nice to use, trying my best to not abuse them :)
