Day 6 of 30 Days of MD Topic: World of Art and MD This is @ainaafrhanah’s story: I’ve been in love with art and design since the day I picked up my first crayon. Constantly drawing, doodling and making things as I grew up, I always knew that I wanted to pursue a creative career. While I spend most of my days on the computer, I am passionate about finding ways to work with my hands. Art has always been my first love and I continue to practice with mediums such as painting, scrapbooking, and art and craft. I’m a firm believer in the power of a strong concept with an unexpected execution, and I challenge myself to explore with every project. I graduated with a Degree in Graphic Design, and I’m now a freelance graphic designer. I have my own brand Conteng by Ainaa. You can follow me on IG and FB. My product lines include pattern design on printed and hand-drawn. I am passionate about the field of creative arts such as painting because the paintings can illustrate something that we do not see, as there is no boundary in the work. Many may not look up to a career as an artist, but I don’t mind. For me it is the same as any other profession. It requires many late-night sessions, creative blocks, stress, as well as networking and meetings. But it is probably the most fun and rewarding line of work I could get into, because the outcome of creating a masterpiece that I have put so much of my time and energy into is so rewarding. I look at it and think ‘I created this’. SMA is with me everyday. There is not one day that I get to take a break and forget about its existence. It takes intense focus and stamina to fight an everyday battle, to manage the unmanageable and stay one step ahead of the unpredictable. SMA may weaken my muscles, but it can never take away my spirit. I am now doing the job that I love. I have an amazing group of friends and loved ones around me. I am still chasing my dreams and I still have a long way to go to achieve my goals. As an emerging artist, all I need is to keep doing what am I doing and keep creating magic. #MDAwarenessMonth #MDAwareness #30daysofmd
