You’d think that the life of a full-time law student consists only of hours of studying, memorizing and more studying, but that’s not how it is for Amira Nur Diana. When she’s not burying her head in another law book, the 20-year old from Kuala Lumpur can be found sitting with her sketch book, working on different forms of drawing, from watercolour art to modern calligraphy and sometimes, digital art.
This passion of hers first started when she was 18. She spent all her savings and allowance on watercolour papers, paints as well as brushes, but looking back there wasn’t an ounce of regret. For what she purchased was more than art materials, it was a way to express herself and communicate with the world.
