The process of creating my works, is like the way I express my feelings, and everything that’s inside me. One time my mom came into my room when I was drawing, and she was totally shocked! I’m a really sensitive person about everything that happens around and beyond me, and I express that all on a piece of paper or canvas…There’s a lot of hitting with a paintbrush, and strong line drawings. If someone were to see me drawing during my process, they would probably think that I’m out of my mind, a pure psycho, and totally crazy.
Once, my art teacher told me that I should visit a psychologist and if I were to live somewhere like the UK, I would be kicked out of school, and all I would ever be is a street sweeper (believe me, YES, I would sweeeep like an artist). So many more instances like this had happened to me during my art classes, so many hurtful words I had heard from her. I still remember those cold, winter days going home from school after class and crying, asking myself “Why me?” Why did I have to suffer in this world? I used to lock myself in the bathroom, look in the mirror and tear up. I hated myself, I hated being trapped in this body named Kamile. It made me stronger, it made me who I am today.
I love drawing with watercolors a lot! I love bright colors, especially red. I think this color affects people a lot. Red is blood, red is danger, red is passion, it’s risky and provocative. I also paint with acrylic. I’d like to paint more, but now I have a lot of requests and people ordering my drawings, so usually I stick with watercolors. I cant wait to finish high school and have some more time for painting on canvas. Also, I make digital artworks using Photoshop.
