My name is CamileDoubtfire, I am 26 years old. I am from West Yorkshire in England.I have been drawing all my life, living in a tattoo studio from the age of 2, I have always been surrounded by art and as I was so isolated from a very young age, I spent my childhood mostly copying Disney video covers and tattoo flash.
2) Do you sell your works? If yes then how do we buy?
I started selling my artwork last Christmas, I take custom orders for portraits and also sell artwork of my own creation on my website www.camiledoubtfire.bigcartel.com using mostly graphite pencils. After spending time on Instagram I started seeing the beautiful artwork being created by other artists using coloured pencil which started my obsession! I prefer to use them at the moment as they are the cleanest medium, I don’t like to have dirty hands!
Through creating all of these portraits I have figured out that I really enjoy drawing beautiful women the most, I also love to draw flowers and animals, combining the 3 if I can.
My advice to all aspiring artists is to get inspired and create art that you want to make, listen to yourself, you are the one with the passion and the gift after all. So many times I have shown my artwork to someone and been discouraged by their negative response, only to have 100 people later on tell me how much they love it. Draw all day everyday for at least 12 hours if you can and invest in the best materials you can afford. I am starting a YouTube channel next week to share what I have learnt so far in my career so there will be lots of helpful hints there soon.
