How did you come to draw illustrations?

It was literally an eureka moment. Drawing illustrations – combining my passion for minimal art yet maximal sentiment – came to me one day (notably the day I first saw a post by Mari Andrew) and the next I had my first post up on @skybanyes. It’s fair to say this ‘eureka’ was fully backed up by three factors:

1) a lifetime of art loving and creating (of various forms, yet never illustrations);

2) my therapist prompting me to use art as an expressive outlet (seeing as it was, for years, so hard for me to ‘get things out’);

3) being a passionate life enthusiast, wanting to be able to light up and enjoy more of life – which was up until now spotted with loss, pain and distress, I had already embarked on a challenge of finding meaning… and peace.
