Qissy Art was born in Italy and moved to England 5 years ago. She works in the architecture but has always loved drawing. She stopped drawing for a long time and seeing her art skills worsen disheartened her. She started drawing again in 2020, since the Covid pandemic.
How long have you been illustrating and what made you start?
I've been creating colouring books since January 2020. I decided to cultivate my huge passion for art which I had previously abandoned due to a different career. Now I work in the architectural field but I don’t want to abandon my passion anymore!
Where do you get your inspiration?
My inspiration comes from nature and everything that surrounds me.
Where is your favourite place to illustrate?
My favourite place to illustrate is in my living room, on my sofa, preferably with a cup of tea and my dog lying next to me!
What are your illustrating/colouring material essentials?
Since January 2020 I mainly use my iPad to illustrate and for colouring.
What’s the piece of work that you are most proud of or enjoyed doing the most?
I’m never proud of my skills, I always look for a way to improve myself! The thing that I enjoy doing the most is drawing female faces.
