Asia's first professional finger-painting artist
My name is Hafsa Idrees and I am a professional Finger-painting artist. Art has always been close to my heart and even though I have not received a formal education in any particular genre, drawing/painting is an important part of my life. Impressionists like Van Gogh, Monet, and Iris are my main inspiration. Our fingertips are designed in a perfect way to manipulate paint, create magical pieces of art and unique textures. I enjoy applying & developing my skills through the exploration of different subjects such as landscapes, figures, animals, & other aspects of nature. My work is predominantly in oils. I would call my current style modern impressionist, semi-abstract and in some cases my work has post-impressionist and expressionist influences. I do not have a fixed creative process; the main idea can be an emotional impulse, a tender moment I experienced, a place that touched me profoundly or simply a dream. Colours are very important for my composition when I plan a painting.
