Tell us how you started your business / creative venture?

My fiancé encouraged me to pick up painting again as something to keep me busy. After the first painting I did, I had the bright idea that I could do something with this and now here I am.

How long have you been doing this? Are there any struggles you want to share?

I’ve been painting for six years but a little over a year ago I quit my job and started taking my art seriously. From that, I decided to start a business. There has been a handful of times where I didn’t think I was progressing fast enough. I’d get discouraged easily. Good things take time. I try to remind myself that.

What made you choose this route?

Painting sets me free and I want to feel free for the rest of my life!
