Long time ago I had a lot of admiration to those who can Draw. I viewed drawing as a nice talent (or skill) that only gifted people have. A couple of years ago I started learning how to draw just to enhance my business skills and ability to communicate my ideas to others. Especially that I was preparing several courses to give in Digital Marketing, E-Commerce and Sales which are the most important skills I learned and practiced over the past 25 years. Thanks to God first, then the Internet, and with some strategic thinking I started to arrange my time to give a lot of time to personal development besides doing business. I learned how to draw for business, then how to sketch using the pencil, then I learned Photoshop which I -for a long period in the past- used to use it just for looking at designs and drafting my notes on it.
My original business is Digital Marketing and I was the Pioneer in introducing it with my first Digital Marketing Agency in Egypt. I had to use Photoshop just to review designs of designers and comment on them.
I found that drawing should not only be for people with a born talent, it is a set of rules that you should study and apply, then practice every day till you become skilled.
Then I learned how to work on a photo to convert it to a piece of art using Photoshop, as if it has been hand drawn from the beginning. Then I started producing my own freehand drawings, that by practicing day by day I started to produce something noticeable.
Although I made a lot of drawings - Digital Paintings- , however I didn't realize that they may be of Value until I started -shyly- posting one by one on my social media profile, to my surprise I found praise from my friends and acquaintances that encouraged me to continue.
I decided to realize the skill and convert it to business, so I started looking for best suppliers who would supply me with what I need to have a final product of my Art. A state of the art Printing house for printing my paintings on Canvas, and a professional frame maker workshop that produces high quality frames.
I printed some of the paintings as a test and I reached a 100% satisfactory quality product that I can proudly sell.
Then coming to the next step, as I am an expert in Digital Marketing and E-Commerce, I decided to launch the whole business online. I chose the name Foonys.com as it is an easy name to remember and related to (Al Fann), and started building my E-Commerce website. I am also proud to have developed it -single handed- in one month, I am the developer, designer, tester, content writer, data entry specialist and Search Engine Optimization specialist of the site. I made it alone to practice my original skills through which I manage others and consult in.
My promise is to continue adding lovely paintings to the site in a timely manner, and hope to be the largest Art Gallery in the middle East within few years from now.
