New Year, New Artists! Home by Faith
by Little Shop Of Pins on Jan 17, 2023
Hello, I'm Jackie Tsang! I'm the designer and owner behind Home by Faith.
Illustrator, plant mom, wife, and Christ follower. At the beginning of 2017, I found myself falling in love with a new hobby: house plants. Around the same time, my love for art was also rekindled and I found myself immersed in doing watercolour paintings. That’s when Home by Faith started. I wanted to share my art and my house plant journey with fellow plant people, so I started an Instagram account. Through meeting fellow plant lovers, I was encouraged to do so much more and this led to opportunities like hosting the Markham Plant Swap in my local community. I mainly draw on an iPad, which, by the way, is an amazing tool for artists. I use Procreate and Affinity Designer, but I also use Sketch and Photoshop on my desktop for further image processing.
Why “Home by Faith”? I believe that God is the creator of this world and he’s my heavenly father. I may not fully know what his plans are for my life, but by faith, I continue to follow in all that he’s called me to do. And so, I chose the name “Home by Faith”. Home is the place where I can be myself (and where my plants are…), but my home can only truly be a home when I have complete faith in God.
