HI I’m Kalliopi, an artist and YouTuber from Greece! I’ve been a creative person since high school. I loved creating realistic pencil drawings, especially portraits. It gave me the basic knowledge I needed to explore and experiment with other materials. Nowadays, I mainly use watercolours and inks, as well as creating digital illustrations. Two years ago, I started my YouTube channel where I give watercolour tutorials and share anything else that makes my creative heart beat just that little bit faster. My art is often inspired by fashion, tattoos, illustrations and also more traditional mediums, such as watercolours. I find that studying classic tattoos is the perfect way to learn how to draw because of their simple designs and clean lines.
