Happy holidays - Reason for my Absence

Happy Holidays

First I would love to wish you all a very merry Christmas. May you and your loved ones have a splendid time together, and have a fantastic, healthy, creative new year.

I do have to update you about something, which may or may not have come unnoticed.

Health problems

This year has been really rough on me, especially the last 6 months. You might know that my health is not very strong, and that I often struggle with health issues. I got multiple forms, symptoms. What exactly they are doesn't matter. I have been ill since age of 10, which is almost 16 years now. I am used to it. So don't worry :)

Anyway, I've been in hospital for a while, had tons of doc appointments, and now I try to regain full strength (whatever lies within my reach).

That being said, I am sorry that I haven't uploaded much this year. Now you know why.

I do not look for sympathy, but for understanding. I just want to tell you that I never intended to abandon you or the art world, nor do I ever want to make you feel that way. I am still here, but slightly less active than usual.

I found it difficult to be unactive, while so many of you created such gorgeous artworks, so inspiring. And I absolutely support any of you to continue and show the world what you've got. I've seen talents grow, while some others somehow stopped uploading. Perhaps for the very same reason as why I stopped uploading artworks for a while. I don't know for sure. I am just guessing.

But the good news is that I slowly but surely seem to get more active again. Yay! I have been working on some bits and pieces, and I certainly do hope to show it to you whenever I can.

All the best and lots of love and good health

Hello! My name is Nicolien, I'm 25 years old and, if you haven't noticed, I love drawing and music!

Ever since I was young I liked to draw and create things. Lately I love to portray the human face and forms with pencils only, and capture that person's essence on paper.


One thing that I've learned through the years is that you can achieve anything if you truly believe in yourself. Enjoy the things that you love to do without being offensive to others. Devotion and respect is what matters.

I read somewhere about an art book you're publishing. Has it been done yet? I'm very very interested in getting a copy. Love your work that much!
