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 both an artist and a school teacher and always strive to live a full, creative life. 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 and recently signed a second contact with Viviva Colorsheets as head of their marketing and Instagram. In the midst of it all, I managed to write a book and conduct monthly 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.
