Just a few words

I like painting and illustrating.I also knit, crochet and make little crafts. I just finished my BA and am taking a few years off before I go back for an MFA.
I'm an introvert so you may not get a lot of communications from me, but I do enjoy connecting w/ fun, art people. I'm currently working on a series called Botanica, and I have a really good feeling about it!
To be honest, I don't like the way many people talk about art and literature. I'm not politically correct and I lack empathy in general, haha. Instead of being an introvert I may be more anti-social. Sometimes I may come off mean or hard to deal with. But if you liked my stuff, just remember I really appreciate that.

~ Fun facts ~
Origin: Shanghai, China

Family member: Hubby & 3 bunnies, no kids
Hobbies: music, knitting, crochet, jigsaw puzzles
Future Plans: Webtoons, and write more. I have ideas for a sci-fi novel and I'm trying to write some short stories.
Confession: I work full time right now and wish I can quit my job and do art FT.

ABOUT ME

Xiao Faria da Cunha is a watercolor artist based in the Kansas City, Missouri area. Her works include illustrations, paintings and manga strips. Faria da Cunha is proud of her profound cultural heritage. Her artworks relate to Asian legends and mythology, delicately reflecting her perspectives and sensations. She combines traditional eastern and contemporary western painting techniques and creates unique textures in her works. Her paintings consist of layers of subtle colors and hidden symbols and will only unfold in front of a dedicated audience their true beauties.
