BIO OF 1ST PLACE WINNER: Anna Liezelle M. Tumbali
I started drawing since am three (3) years old. Art is a talent since my childhood, teenage days and up to present. I graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Arts in Literature. I’m also holding a degree in Master in Business Administration (MBA).
I’m also into managing our family business of Commercial building for rent. Though, am just waiting for rental payments as a Landlord, I spent my time daily in drawing, painting and doing my artworks. I was a former Lecturer and Assistant Professor in Marketing and Management in Colleges and University in Manila. I draw and paint on canvas (huge, medium and small) and watercolor pads. My mediums are oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel and charcoal painting.
I do live art drawing and painting on my facebook account Artsincolors Annapaints. I post all my painting and art works in my facebook link https://www.facebook.com/artsincolorsannapaints/ and post on reels as well. I do youtube painting tutorials in my channel @artsincolors_annapaints and the link is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8LBdvAuerm7rQUJ0GDNrmw where I upload videos of my painting techniques. I also post my art works in my instagram account artsincolors.annapaints and the link is https://www.instagram.com/artsincolors.annapaints/?hl=en that is connected to my facebook account. My twitter account is @ArtsinColor71 and the link is https://twitter.com/ArtsinColor71 to share my paintings and art painting videos as well.
Though my Pinterest account is old and am still updating it to post my shirt collections as well. I submit my shirt designs on Spreadshirt, Threadless and Redbubble. I also do lazy minting of my art works as Non Fungible Token (NFT) at OpenSea. Art is my love and passion. I’m an introvert and I love my own space being alone so I can concentrate on my next art projects.
