fun painting and playing with color

I am Armella and I love to paint!

To tell you the truth Armella doesn't exist. Armella is a figment of Artist's imagination. She is a little girl who LOVES PAINT and COLOR! Armella is a huge part of me. I am just an ordinary person but I loved painting all my life, for as long as I can remember. No, Armella is not my imaginary friend :) She is my inner child and when I paint I try to see the world through her eyes. She is just an excuse to make beautiful art. It doesn't even have to be art - just fun stuff, playing with art supplies and colors, and seeing what happens in the process.

Let me ask you this: when was last time when you did something like that?

I wonder if you were intimidated to paint only because someone once told you that your painting doesn't look anything like the subject you were inspired by. I know, I had my moments. Say, you aren't familiar with a color wheel or with primary colors, or even can't really sketch your subject without feeling awkward. So what! I didn't let it stop me! I am completely self taught and I am super excited to share my art and my creative journey with you! After all it is not about the finished painting. No? What is it about then? I will tell you - having fun in the process! What you see on this website is my artwork.

I hope I can help you forget about being an adult (just for a moment) - come with me into a magical world of whimsical art and paint like a child, like you were once...
