Should I use Wordpress to make my online portfolio?

Hi, I am trying to create online portfolio for my artworks.

I was wondering if it is better for me to create my own website with Wordpress rather than creating from the scratch with HTML and CSS.

Upon making my portfolio website, I wish to learn a bit of coding as well.

Please share your thoughts on this! Thank you!

I believe using wordpress for your portfolio site would be great and beneficial especially if you plan to constantly add new projects to your site. They are plugins you can use and templates you can make to make this work. My portfolio is custom coded using the Genisis Theme and Bootstrap if you like you can check it out at http://darrylrachel.com
