About Me

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]avatar circle

My name is Darlene Nguyen and I am a 26 year old Vietnamese Canadian portrait artist. I share free drawing tutorials and art related blog posts on my site. If you are not familiar with my Youtube channel, I work with a variety of mediums and materials to create fun and unique art projects. My goal is to capture the creative process from the first brush stroke all the way to the last and share it with you through short, timelapsed videos. Although it’s fun creating speed drawings, it’s also an incredibly long process – which is why it’s so rewarding to see it all come to life in just a matter of minutes. I hope you enjoy my tutorials and videos!

Darlene :)

    You’re so talented Darlene! I learned a lot from your tutorials and also on the pages. I went from drawing stick figures without arms to being what my mom calls “professional”. She was really impressed with my work. Thank you Darlene!!!

    >I love your drawing lessons, I wonder if you could answer a question for me. In the past I’ve been saving your lessons in Adobe Reader. But I haven’t saved any for a while and I can remember how I saved them lol or you’ve changed things. Probably the first thought my memory. Anyway if you would help me I would appreciate it. I go campi b g in the mountains of Utah a lot so I don’t always have interent service. That’s why I save them in Adobe..

  9. You are amazing Darlene. I’m a 42 year old self-taught artist who learned a lot of bad habits your tutorials are helping me correct. I wish you much success and appreciate you more than you know. Bless you and take care!
