The Artist ♕
Olivia | 24 | United States
Hello, my name is Olivia! I am more commonly known by my online alias CharmChi. Art has always been a passion of mine. Growing up, my parents instilled a love for creativity in me. I have always enjoyed arts and crafts and art stores have been a toy wonderland for me. I started my art journey the same way any messy child would, with fingerpaints! Since then, I evolved into doing more formal paintings and now digital paintings.
GaiaOnline was my first home as a digital artist. At the time, I figured the only good way to gain in-game currency was to sell my art. GaiaOnline was a wonderful place to interact with many other artists and art collectors. The game had such a wide selection of different original characters and avatars to choose from. The energy of the community and selection of characters has always inspired me. I used the art forums to make freebie art and practice drawing chibis and anime inspired art. I drew every day until I thought I was good enough to sell my art on the art shop forums. I have made many friends and learned a lot along the way. I would not be the artist I am today without the GaiaOnline community.
