“It’s quite the balancing act to take care of your creative soul and your wallet. Another piece of advice when first getting started: be true to yourself, create what is real to you, not what you think will sell. Try not to be overly inspired by your favorite artists. Collectors and buyers see right through you if your work is not from the heart. It’s a task well worth undertaking, trust me!”
