We are delighted to introduce to you Amreta, a talented javanese artist with whimsy drawings inspired by her culture.
Hello Amreta. Could you introduce yourself in a few words to our web users ?
Hi there ! My name is Amreta and I’m a proud late-bloomer, self-taught artist living in Jakarta, Indonesia. I create both colourful artwork and colouring pages, mostly inspired by nature, animal, javanese puppets (wayang) and swedish kurbits. I’m also a firm believer of a creative process called “trial-and-error”.
How did your passion for drawings come up to you ?
I was born into a pair of artist parents, but I never wanted to be an artist until my late twenties when I started to create my own graphics since I couldn’t find suitable graphics for my first website. I was hooked. It was like revisiting my childhood time watching my father creating his paintings..
