Childhood memories

During my childhood I was exposed to various forms of art from drawing, to painting , to craft-making. Creativity has always been my childhood play ground.
I remember when I was 7 years old, I was overwhelmed with joy when I received my first box of color pencil that my mom has bought me in preparation for my very first school day (standard one). Back then, I had a cousin sister who was 2 year older than me who has borrowed my color pencil to draw a lovely girl with center parting hair. I was so fascinated that I copied her drawing, and that was the very first time I drew a proper picture.

Back then during my childhood there are no Barbie Dolls or computer games. I would draw different paper dolls, and cut them out. I would then trace the dolls’ silhouette and drew lots of pretty dresses. With the paper cut dolls and dresses, I would then play with my sisters or neighbors. I was like a little fashion designer.
