20 y/o self taught raw artist.

Hi I’m Nicole Tapia Torres. I was born in Lima, Perú, but moved at the age of 8 to America. I’ve always loved art as a child, ever since i could remember. When I was younger I used to love making small drawings for my mom of how my day went; even though they weren’t really as good, she always supported me through everything and always encourage to keep on making art. Then one day my mom decided to buy me acrylic paint and a canvas. At that very moment, my creativity begin to flow naturally. Next thing I knew my whole room was filled by all my artwork. To this day, even though I still love taking art classes to get inspired and to broaden my knowledge for art. I would say I learn best by doing different ideas I never though of and learning from my own mistakes. I’ve experimented with different types of art through out my life, one of my favorite types of art would still have to be acrylic painting because I have a passion for mixing different beautiful colors to create one of a kind art piece. What usually inspires me to make art is either, controversial topics such as things no one ever taught about, or seeing how beautiful nature can really be at its peak, also the love couples can have for one another, is truly beautiful and inspires me to capture it all on painting.
