Well, I think I have a natural talent for art, mainly drawing and painting. I’ve always been very keen on creative arts, and I’ve been encouraged by my parents from a young age to enjoy drawing and painting. When I first discovered I was good at art was when I was in nursery school, we did a lot of drawing there with coloured pens and pencils. Since then I think I developed a natural sense of perspective and I started to get really into drawing in a more passionate way. It developed into a real hobby, I’d say, and I started to carry a sketch pad around with me as a teenager, I took some extra art classes on the weekend at a local French school, and became really interested in reading and watching documentaries about painters. I joined a sort of painting club at university run by a teacher who was an oil painter. It’s quite hard to paint with oil paints and they’re messy and take a long time to dry, and also there are some really complicated and skilled techniques about how to use them. So… if I had the time to improve a talent that I think I already have, I would take a long and intense course in oil painting… That’s exactly what I would do. I love oil painting, but I can’t seem to be able to do it well, at all. In fact, when I paint with oils, it looks highly uNPRofessional. I think in life when you have a talent, you need to practice it, but then branch out and take your talent to the next level, which means three things: you’ve got to have a strong sense of motivation, a sense of discipline, and be good at managing your time. I absolutely love art, so I would love to be able to take my hobby and passion to the next level.
