I am 23 years old and have always loved creating art. I started my business about 6 months ago and can’t wait to grow with my work. I work full time as a customer representative at Quakertown Veterinary Clinic and work on my art during the weekend. I am engaged to my wonderful fiancé William Fisher and we have a cute as a button cat named Nutmeg.
I create inspirational pieces including drawings, canvas paintings, painting on wooden pieces and coasters. I also love painting nature scenes that include snowy mountains, trees and lakes.
All ages, you’re never too young or old to get inspired by art!
I worked as a Certified Nurses Aid for 2 years in nursing homes.
At my home in Pennsburg, PA. My dedicated work space is a corner in my living room!
I would say my greatest success is creating works of art that are personalized to the customers needs. I created a personalized cutting board for my dad’s birthday with his favorite recipe on it. When I posted it to social media, I immediately had a couple people interested in getting one made for either themselves or their loved ones! Creating a piece of work that can be personalized could be a big hit!
I’ve created a schedule for myself that helps keep me on track with my projects, orders and goals.
Getting the word out and making connections. It’s a lot of work and time to create posts on social media, putting up flyers, vendoring at local craft fairs etc.. but ultimately worth it and will pay off in the end!
There was a period where I stopped doing my work and felt like I lost my muse. I felt like I wasn’t as good as everyone else on social media.
Did you always see yourself owning a business? If so, is this the business that you thought you would be owning? If not, what did you think you’d be doing?
When I was younger, for a little while I thought would grow up and own a restaurant (only because Princess Tiana from The Princess and the Frog owned a restaurant and I am a huge Disney lover!)
Never give up, lose hope, or compare yourself to others! You got this!
Instagram has been my favorite tool to use because it allows me to connect to people from all around the world.
I love watching my favorite shows on Netflix with Will and Nutmeg and I also love to crochet.
