What is your creative work?

Visual Arts

Tell us how you started your business / creative venture?

For as long as I can remember I used to draw cartoon characters and comics book heroes and sell em for a dollar during elementary school.

How long have you been doing your creative work?

Since I could pick up a crayon.

What made you choose this journey?

My love and passion for creating how I feel. Growing up I didn’t really have a lot of emotional outlets and support so I would draw to covey my feelings.

What kind of struggles did you face in your journey?

Growing up my parents didn’t want me to become an artist so they showed their disapproval many times but I always was persistent with my desire to be an artist.

What is one advice you can give to creatives struggling right now?

Keep going all the work pays off.
