She succumbed to the illness earlier than expected, shocking her followers. But her situation is more complicated than that. Prior to the cancer diagnosis, Qinni was put through open-heart surgery four times before she was diagnosed with cancer.
She turned to art to distract herself from the pain. Many fans and artists knew her from her DeviantArt days since 2008, and her art profession had taken off since then.
One of her famous works is this, which sparked the “galaxy freckles” makeup trend. The artist was thrilled to see how her art had such a great impact on different kinds of people as it transcended to makeup.
