My name is Umaimah Islam, I’m currently studying in 9th class. I was born in Delhi. When I was around 11 years old, I suddenly got interested in arts and paintings. Now, I’ve been painting for almost 2 years. I’m a self-taught artist and I know have a lot more to learn and improve upon.
Nature’s beauty inspires me to paint. I used to paint sceneries and landscapes, sometimes getting ideas by the work of senior professional artists and sometimes adding my own ideas as well but I used to be really insecure that I’m not doing good enough, but what I think that made an improvement in my work was the appreciation and encouragement by my elders.
Now, when I compare my previous artworks with recent ones, I myself feel really happy seeing the marked improvement. I’m trying to constantly get better and make my parents proud.
A year ago I also an account on instagram @Umaimah_Art, because of how curious I was and I really wanted to see if people like to see my artworks or is it that my family and friends praise my work just to make me feel good. The response is good and people have started following my account and the feedback is good. I’m happy with it as well.
That’s it for now. Thank you so much, I’m glad that I got a chance to introduce myself and tell about my passion.
