HELLO! I'M NORIKO!
I am a self-taught artist who is passionate about teaching and sharing art. I started my art journey when I was a teen but didn’t pursue it until much later in adult life when serendipity brought me back to art in 2012. I felt a calling to pursue it seriously, so I decided to devote everything I had into creating art with colored pencils. My initial plan was to switch the medium after I felt that I have learned all that I can learn, so I started drawing a wide variety of subject matters as a way to teach myself. Still to this date, I continue to learn something new about colored pencil art every day! Looks like it will be quite a long while until I am done with colored pencil!
