About the Instructor
Watercolor Illustrator, Alisa
Hello everyone! my name is Alisa.
My career as an illustrator began at the age of 6, and after a few years of attending the art school, I became aware of my love towards watercolor paints and thus, I decided to becomes a watercolor illustrator. I illustrate for recipe books, planners, prints for clothes and I really love seeing people loving my art and drawing.
For me, painting is something that relaxes and meditates me and I believe others will feel the same way when they discover the true value of art and paintings.
Q: How did you first start doing what you do?
My career as an illustrator began when my follower from Instagram asked if I could design prints for his t-shirt. I found my true love towards watercolor as I felt very delighted to see my follower being pleasant with the prints that I drew for him. I love working with people, and I want people to discover what values that paintings brings to them just like it did to me.
