Art With some simple household items and your favourite plants, making your own watercolours is easy.
SoMK spent several years at the creative end of the advertising business, and eventually ended up as a teacher of programming languages for the computer and medical industry. In 2001, blissfully unaware, she embarked on a full-time artistic career. Her STEM background drove her to play a lot with plants and extracting pigments – Covid confinement sealed the deal. She is now making most of her own paints from various plants growing in her garden. Be it in jewellery or illustration, SoMK draws her inspiration from a variety of sources - a combination of nature, history, fantasy, science-fiction, horror and whisky.
