gnarlyos | Beautiful Instagrams
One day we were perusing through Instagram, as we normally do when all of a sudden - stop, double tap. We happened to stumble upon this beautiful hand drawn picture:
We thought, okay someone reposted. Nah. This was an OG post! Naturally, we had to know more about this mysteriously gifted artist.
Because she was so talented, we expected she was going to be snobby - I mean, we would be if we could draw like that. To our surprise, she was so sweet and kind and her personality was even better than her drawings!! Damn. Some people have it all ;P
So let’s get to know her a bit, but first a proper introduction!
Her personal art account is @gnarlyos and you can find all her helpful beauty and fashion tips on her blog, "Purely Sierra." Don't worry, her site has an insta toooo @sierrabellle Get on that follow game if you haven't already!
We had a nice lil chit chat with Sierra and here were some of the highlights:
So when did you start drawing?
I began drawing when I was pretty young, I started pretty much after I saw my sister drawing and I was inspired by her to start.
Is there anything in particular that inspired you to draw?
Most of the time an idea just comes to me and I decide to draw something haha
What’s is the hardest thing to draw, in your opinion?
The hardest thing to draw for me is fingernails, I have no idea why but they seem impossible to draw for me.
Any tricks or tips you learned with drawing?
I learned to draw what you want to see instead of draw what you physically see, and this has helped me draw
Why did you come up with the name Purely Sierra?
One day I woke up and decided I wanted to start blogging and the name Purely Sierra came to me.
How did fashion start playing a larger role?
When I was around age two I began accessorizing, I then started becoming more involved in fashion when I was around age eleven. Ever since then I have used fashion as an outlet for self expression.
