Getting to know Rhobz
Rhobynne Patricia “Rhobz” Villaluna
What made you start with this craft?
I wanted to overcome my frustrations with watercolor so I decided to attend a workshop.
How long have you been doing this craft?
A year and a half.
Why did you pursue it?
I really enjoyed doing it. It’s a great stress reliever and also a break from what I usually do.
Did you have struggles in pursuing the craft? If yes, could share it with us, please?
There was a time when I thought that I am not improving and that I could only copy from artists I admire. But when I read Austin Kleon’s “Steal Like an Artist”, I learned that as a beginner, copying is okay as long as you don’t take credit for it. So I decided to infuse what I learned through copying from other artists with my art and that’s how I developed my own style.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

If you are to share your tips and tricks with newbies, what would those be?
Practice, practice, practice and when you feel like giving up, just practice. You don’t have to spend hours for it, a few minutes could do. Just do it and don’t be afraid to make mistakes, do art as if you won’t post it online and just enjoy the process.
