Hi, I'm Anastasia, a young 13-years-old NFT artist who is passionate about art. Drawing has been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember. I dedicate 5-6 hours every day to creating art, expressing myself through various mediums such as digital art, paints, watercolors, markers, and pencils

My artistic journey began at a very young age. At just six years old, I was already producing an impressive number of artworks — my mom would tell you that I drew around 70 pieces per day!

Drawing became second nature to me, and I found myself sketching everywhere I went: at home, at school, art courses, and even on the streets

I actively participated in art competitions and had the privilege of winning several awards. Additionally, I held solo exhibitions to showcase my creations

Several memorable experiences took place when I was nine years old.

One such occasion was when I was asked to create an artwork on the spot in front of my entire school. With confidence, I sketched a lion, showcasing my artistic abilities in front of an audience. It was a significant moment for a nine-year-old, don't you think?

Moreover, I had the privilege of witnessing the impact of my art on a broader scale. The first artwork was sold at a charitable auction, and it fetched an impressive sum of $200. The proceeds from that sale were dedicated to supporting children in need, contributing to a cause I deeply care about. Additionally, I had another artwork sold, with the entire amount generously donated to help the koalas in Australia.

These experiences not only heightened my passion and belief in the transformative power of art but also solidified my commitment to utilizing my artistic skills to create positive change in the world

In February 2022, I took a bold leap into the captivating and ever-evolving world of NFTs, immersing myself in the realm of digital art, blockchain technology, and the vibrant community that surrounds it. Combining my love for animals, especially dogs, I created the Soapy Dogs brand. Through this brand, I have released three successful collections, with a portion of the proceeds going towards organizations and individuals who help animals in need

In June 2022, I began working on my generative collection called Soapy Dad. This project has been a labor of love, with over 240 unique traits carefully drawn by me. Overcoming many technical challenges, I successfully launched Soapy Dad in August 2022.

I'm proud that I made everything by myself — imagined the character and conception, drew all the layers and traits, found the platform for generating the collection, and tackled all technical issues.

Soapy Dad is a delightful project that revolves around a busy and loving dad and his playful kids. It celebrates the importance of family and the joy of spending quality time with children. The collection aims to inspire adults to prioritize and cherish these moments. In conjunction with the launch, I created a series of educational videos detailing the process of creating a generative collection

I have also created several 1/1 NFT collections, collaborated with various projects, and made numerous donations due to NFT sales.

In just 1,5 year in the NFT space, I have achieved significant milestones. I am proud to share that more than 85 of my 1/1 NFTs have found their forever homes, and the community has minted over 1000 of my pfp Soapy Dad NFTs. These numbers speak to the support and enthusiasm I've received from a vibrant and engaged community.

Furthermore, as a passionate advocate for the arts, I believe in giving back. Through the sales of my NFTs, I have been able to make substantial contributions. To date, I have directed 50% of my earnings towards supporting fellow artists and charitable causes. It brings me great joy to know that my work not only resonates with individuals but also helps make a positive impact in the world

Gratitude

I am grateful for the incredible opportunities that arise and the ability to connect with a diverse and supportive community.

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all my NFT collectors and fellow artists. Your support and appreciation for my art have been overwhelming. I am truly thankful for each and every one of you who has shown interest in my work and believed in its value. Your contributions have allowed me to pursue my passion and create meaningful pieces that resonate with others. Your ongoing support means the world to me, and I am sincerely grateful for your enthusiasm and belief in my art.

Thank you for joining me on this artistic journey. I hope that my creations bring inspiration, joy, and contribute to a brighter future
