|Give Me Wings to Fly. Pencil. By Alexandra Miron|
When did you start drawing?
I started when I was 10 or 11, I was spending the summer holidays at my grandparents and I was drawing from some history books. But I stopped drawing for a while and 3 years ago when I joined deviantart, I started to dedicate more time to drawing.
Did you have instruction somewhere and did you learn on your own?
When I was 11-12 I went to some drawing classes, then at 22 I was thinking to study art in the university (I studied first foreign languages: Portuguese and Greek, in 2007 I earned my degree) so I took 3 or 4 classes, but then I took a study scholarship in Greece, so again I gave up on drawing. And in 2010 I ended up in Cyprus. Since then I am working in a 4 star hotel as a receptionist and I draw in the mornings, before I go to work (most of the time I work from 15 to 23 hours, late shift) and I work 6 days a week, so not too much time for drawing.
What is your inspiration?
My inspiration...I study on my own history of art...I admire all the artists, and I admit I am not too much into modern art...I mean, I love romantic, Gothic, renaissance, baroque, romantique, neoclassicist, impressionist and symbolic art...but the 1900's art...not a huge fan, although there are a few like Tamara de Lempicka or Dali that I like...
What are the media that you draw/paint with?
I draw in pencil, using between 2 and 8B, and lately, I am trying to master the ballpoint pen.
What advice would you give to aspiring artists?
My advice to aspiring artists would be: hard work and don't give up on your dreams.
