I reflected on the process of making this step, as well as offered some encouragement to artists who are thinking about making a switch.
2. Discovering My Artistic Technique

I explained how my love for natural landscapes is reflected in my choice of vibrant and pastel colors, bringing joy into your home! It was an opportunity to share the evolution and experimentation that led me to find my artistic voice.
3. The Influence of Social Media
We also discussed the role of social media in the art world. I shared my experiences and insights on how platforms like TikTok and Instagram can be powerful tools for artists to connect with a wider audience, build a supportive community, and showcase their work. We explored the potential of digital platforms in expanding artistic reach and forging collaborations, highlighting the importance of embracing these tools as part of an artist's professional practice.
