Having a wholesale partyware company for 11 years (www.sambellina.com.au), I always preferred the creative aspects of the business (graphic design, photography, marketing and styling) and in the last few years, I have wanted to move towards more design and illustrating.
In the crazy 2020, a silver lining for me, has been the opportunity to have time to practice tools and software, and work out my artistic style and voice. I started drawing people and destinations. It does almost feel as though I am there when I am immersed in an artwork…. I figure, if we can’t travel right now, why not draw it?
