Hi! My name is Paz Tapiola.
I always loved drawing as a kid, but it was never something serious until the age of 15 when I spent various months in bed due to an injury. During that time, drawing was the only thing I could do.
My passion for it started increasing more and more each day. I started drawing fan arts for my favorite books and, as soon as I could, I bought a digital tablet. Shortly after, I was drawing my own characters and accepting commissions and requests from people on the other side of the globe.
Now, I want to share what I learned during these past few years with the world.
