Hi, my name is Sequoia, and I love playing with colours! I'm an Irish artist with a love of beautiful things, and I try to make art that brings a bit more beauty into the world with every painting.
I've always been a creative person, but only after 4 years studying literature and creative writing did I admit to myself that I'm happiest when I'm drawing, painting or anything related to visual arts.
So after university, I was feeling lost and uncertain, and I impulsively decided to do a one year art course at a local technical institute.
That showed me I love art, but I don't necessarily need someone to teach me... I'm happy to teach myself! I love to experiment and learn by doing.
So I decided to do 100 days of alcohol ink paintings to see just how much I could figure out. On the way I started sharing my work on Instagram, where I ended up with over 30k followers (that might be where you know me from).
But all along I've just been painting in my home, making do with cramped spaces and bad lighting. These not-ideal conditions mean I've learned a thing or two, which I am happy to share with you! I think art is a wonderful and beneficial thing and the more people who can experience it, the better!
