"Creating art from my heART! Since summer 2013, at the age of 5, I have been creating art. I find happiness in the process and completion of my work. That happiness remains the same throughout the years. My style and materials used has evolved with my experiences, but now that happiness has expanded in sharing my work with people who truly appreciates the arts! I started with computer paper and crayons then later I enjoyed working with oil pastels and charcoal, I currently prefer to work with acrylic paints on mix media paper or stretched canvases. The bold black lines with vibrant colorful splatter, adding highlights, and even glitter. It's in the details. I love the freedom of mixing up what I intended along with mistakes. Nothing is perfect but satisfaction can be achieved." Nalin Isme
Nalin's interest in writing started in his Kindergarten school year... In September 2019, he became a published Author! By the grace of God this young artist and author is just getting started.
