How I Find My Own Art Style
I’m Rouba Alsayed also known as Ruby Caurlette. I am a student studying architecture as well as working as a freelance portrait artist. I have been drawing for almost 7 years now and during this time, I worked and collaborated with various brands and artists like Parblo, Rainy Milo and Skillshare where I got to expand and grow my career path as an artist.
Drawing has been my hobby that I often enjoyed during my spare time since I was at a younger age. A few years ago, I opened my Instagram account and since then I have received lots of support and love from my followers around the world which has since been a huge motivation for me to keep on learning and practicing art to eventually become a digital drawing artist.
