My name is Merissa. My nickname is Merizz. I’m a girl with passion of making art. Art is my expression. I’m 20 years young, Dutch and born in a small town named Wouw. For four years now, I’m studying as graphic designer at the Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam.
Of all things, for as long as I can remember, I’ve enjoyed drawing the most. Even as a kid at elementary school the teachers and other kids used to admire my skills, I was way ahead of the rest. Whenever I drew a human-like being, the proportions were just right, just like the colours. Other people would sometimes think someone way older drew it for me.
And to this day forward, I draw. Every year I get better and develop myself. Practise makes perfect, that’s my motto. Every year during visual arts some teachers say I’m ahead of the rest, or even ahead of them. I get the best grades and every now and then other people are jealous at me. Hundreds of people ask me how I do what I do but I can’t answer that question. It’s just something I’m good at. Sometimes even I’m surprised at the progress I’ve made during the years. I’m self-taught and have never had drawing lessons.
I hope you like and enjoy my work!
