Another day for another Featured Artist. Let's meet the so-called "Chibi Queen"; Thina or Thinz.
Hey! I am so flattered to be chosen as a featured artist and to have some interview as well because I am a nobody of course, hehe!
Here we go.. Thina Villanueva here, i had a friend who introduced me to a clay, (finished product na!). She told me na kung ako daw ang gagawa for sure kaya din ko yun.. Thankful agad kasi she believe in my talent di ba? At first syempre wala akong idea, until my other friend of mine make yakag me to accompany her sa WS without knowing kung ano ang gagawin dun. Ayun nga it’s a basic polymer clay WS with my mentor Poxee.. waley appeal sa akin yung ibang ginawa namin during ws.. kinarir ko lang talaga ang mga chibi hahaha! :P Voila! Yun na!
