My name is Simela Petridis and I am a self-taught watercolour artist from Adelaide, Australia. My fascination with art started at the young age of 3 but I quickly hung up my brushes until the age of 22. Pizzle Paints became my outlet from my tertiary studies, becoming a high school teacher proved to be the most challenging adventure yet. Fast forward two years, I am now qualified and work as an artist and a secondary school teacher. I always strive to live a full, creative life as it fuels my spirit. Pizzle Paints gained traction and with traction came opportunity. In 2017 I signed my first contract with Prima Marketing Inc. as a member of their Watercolour Design Team. In 2018 I signed a second contact with Viviva Colorsheets as head of their marketing and Instagram and in 2019 I filmed a series of online classes for an incredible Education art platform Art Eye Deer as well as a series of Skillshare projects. In the midst of it all I managed to write a How-To Watercolour Wreath Book and I conduct monthly watercolour workshops in Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne - you can say life is pretty crazy. I am a huge believer in TIMING and SELF-MADE opportunity and Pizzle Paints is the truest representation of that. My serving heart will never stop helping or creating and I wanted to say I am truly thankful for all your support.
