The Full Story

You might be curious about the connection between acrylic and epoxy pour art and graphic design. The direct link may not seem apparent, but it all began during the pandemic. With my five-year-old daughter no longer in school, I needed to reassess how I balanced working from home and being an engaged mom. That’s when I stumbled upon a mesmerizing technique on TikTok: pouring acrylic paint onto a canvas to create captivating fractals. Together with my daughter, we embarked on this creative journey, experimenting and crafting until it led to the opening of an online store.

However, as the pandemic continued and responsibilities at home increased, I faced the tough decision to close the online shop and temporarily set aside my art. Financial realities demanded my focus. Thankfully, with the support of my spouse, I was able to fully immerse myself back into my graphic design career.

This page not only reflects my journey but also offers you a glimpse into another aspect of who I am. Here, I break free from the confines of my everyday work to embrace change. Watching the unpredictable dance of colors on a canvas and witnessing the convergence of nature and reality in the patterns it forms are liberating and serendipitous experiences. It’s a space where creativity flourishes boundlessly, and where I discover profound inspiration that enriches my design work.
