: Hello From South Africa

10-23-2016, 11:20 AM

I am an artist currently residing in South Africa although I am immigrating to Edinburgh in January 2017 as my husband has work there. (So exciting)

I did not study art at university since my family who paid for the degree did not approve. I studied a BA Humanities in Classical studies and English Literature. Classical studies, for those of you who don't know, is the study of the ancient world. We specialised in the Romans and Greeks. So I consider myself a self-taught artist since I did not undergo any formal training.
How ever my husband is very creative and my mother is also an artist so I have had a lot of input and learning in those ways.

I like to work in colour pencil, water colour and acrylic paint. Sometimes all at once and sometimes separately. ;)

I consider myself very friendly and I would love to make friends here! So please don't be shy.
Oh also I have used xyoopx as my branding for a lot of websites and a lot of people ask me how to pronounce it, it was actually supposed to just be yoop but a lot of websites did not have that available to I just pronounce it yoop still. My real name is Diella so you can call me that too.
