My name is Haydee Reveles, but you can call me iBelieve. I am a self taught artists born and raised in Los Angeles CA. I never attended art school nor did I know much about art growing up. I’ll be honest, all the knowledge I had about art as a kid growing up were coloring books and crayons and maybe some paint if I could get my hands on it and even with that I didn’t take art that serious. As I grew older it never crossed my mind to some day be an artist. I mean, why would I? Nothing pointed me to that direction or led me to it. Now I know it sounds out of the blue but one day (six years ago) I was bored out of my mind and decided to paint with some left over paints my daughters had lying around. I can honestly say I sucked so bad but the process of learning how to paint was so much fun and entertaining to me that it intrigued me to challenge my self and learn how to do things better.
I was so determined to learn how to paint portraits that I started studying every day by sketching and painting . Even with the struggles and the constant mistakes I kept going and got better and I realized I didn’t know how to stop anymore. I feel that point was the moment I realized this was becoming my passion and I started sharing my progress and creations with those who appreciated them. As I stop and look back, I never imagined my work would end up in galleries, and it shows if you love something and are passionate about it then keep doing it. As I continue my work today my goal still remains the same to keep painting everyday, keep learning new things and to paint what ever inspires me (which is everything). Art is infinite there’s no limits, no rules and everything goes. So I guess I’ll never be bored again!
