About me



Hi, I'm Lettie and drawing is my passion! (Ha, ha, I'm sure you've heard this a thousand times, so typical of artists! LOL! :)

I've been drawing since... I do not know... forever?


This is my cousin and I (She is posing. I am too busy choosing the perfect color). By the way, am I talking with the coloured pencils?...
If they were trying to communicate with me, I think I didn’t understand them, because this was the result:


Look, my first paper cut doll!! So pretty, huh! 

I was seven years old when I started taking drawing lessons. I learned to use pastel, oil, charcoal, watercolors ... Oh!, watercolors, I love watercolors! ... I have lost count of how many drawings I have made since then...


This is the biggest artwork I have ever done using watercolors. It is about 5 feet long. I was 15 years old and I only had small brushes. I learned two things from this experience: 1. Don’t use watercolors for super big canvases, and 2. If you do it, at least buy a BIGGER brush! A number 2 brush is definitely too small for this!!!

Thanks to a scholarship I studied Architecture. I learned many cool things and discovered digital painting. I started using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Autocad, 3D Studio Max... Procreate didn’t exist yet, ha ha. I love the creative part of being an architect but I don’t like so much the technical part. Structural calculations, building regulations... sooooo boring!!!

I always have dreamt about being my own boss, work whenever and wherever I want but, you can’t put the cart before the horse. I needed money!
I worked here and there... I never would have imagined that I would work as a hair model (it was fun, by the way), a congress hostess, a secretary, a commercial agent (this job wasn’t fun, but very well paid)... I co-founded Inobice Design & Software and started creating illustrations for games, apps and books.


Yeah, this is me! And that’s not a wig, I wish it would have! That’s my hair!!!

One day I discovered Procreate and I totally fell in love with the app. A couple years later I was publishing my first Procreate class on Skillshare. A few months later the second one... the third one... Teaching makes me really happy! I started working on commissions, selling my art through print on demand sites... and here I am, walking along a bumpy road toward my dream. I do not know how long it will take to get a steady income as a freelancer, so I'm just enjoying the journey, do you want to walk with me?
