When and how did you get into art?

I stepped into art almost two decades ago while in my teens, took a break when I entered the work-force (for a non-art related job) and started becoming more serious with my art just over 4 years ago. The prolific artist Waneella was my inspiration to dive deep into pixel-art.

When was your first big breakthrough?

It's hard to pinpoint one event as a big breakthrough as most things seem to progress in small steps, but I would say the largest 'breakthrough' for myself was being approved to mint my work on the SuperRare and MakersPlace platforms.
