“I have quite a lot of hobbies but Drawing is my favourite thing to do! Drawing is such a passion for me, I love to create beauty.”

Speaking on how she started, Joanna says, “I have been drawing for as long as I can remember, it’s something I always do even absentmindedly. I always drew but never really made any profit out of it, but at some point in 2016, I was brainstorming ways I could start making my own money and that is when it hit me that since people admire what I create, I can make it a source of income.”

“So I started doing fashion illustrations for people. Right now, I’m really trying to create a brand, figure out my style a little more and improve on my skills.”

“My art is centralised on fashion and beauty. Mostly, I draw women because women are so beautiful and I want to depict that in any way that I can.”

“The best part to me about my art is how people feel and react when they see it. I see intrigue and excitement on their faces and it motivates me and makes me so happy.”

“When I do people’s makeup and they see the end result and they feel even more beautiful, it delights me. The message of my art is to focus on the beauty all around us and make people feel better in any way that I can.”

“Honestly my art is inspired by colours. Colours I see all around me in the beauty of nature, on TV, in magazines, it all inspires me to create.”
