Being an artist is something that is almost expected in my family, but coming from a long line of musicians, designers and artists of some sort, it’s incredibly unusual when a relative doesn’t follow in the family footsteps in the art industry one way or another, but I suppose I am just like the rest of my family, because as soon as I knew what a paintbrush could do, I could never get enough of it.
I was originally fascinated with fantasy and abstract art, but as I grew older, I started finding more of an interest in creating realistic portraits, the more realistic the better! My first years attempting realism ended in frustration, as it was turning out to be much harder than I first though. Once I graduated high school, my skills were at their peak, however, I wasn’t completely sure what I wanted to do career wise. I talked it over with my parents, and they recommended that I become an online artist and take commissions. I thought this was a really great idea, however I wanted to take it a step further, and get my own artisan loft. My parents agreed to look for an artisan loft for rent for me, and help me pay for it. There were numerous different office spaces for rent, and we eventually found the perfect office space for rent. My parents told me that I should try consulting with a business incubator for help uplifting my business, and I decided I am going to take their advice.
