Yes, I need to make my living as an artist. The release that creating a piece of work gives me is crucial to my happiness. I believe that making a living as an artist may be a struggle at times, but it is something I am confident working towards. I am willing to run into challenges and risks. Understanding the components of what I might expect to encounter will help me design a career plan. I would like to start my own company in collaboration with like-minded artists and designers. Together, I hope to have a curated working website and company.

I posses skills for creativity. I have an artist eye which allows me to decide essentially what looks good and what doesn’t (meaning art and design). I can sketch ideas on paper very well. I also love fashion, interior and home design, style, culture, food advertising, art, textile design and the list goes on. I can sketch, paint and make jewelry, although I hope to improve in these areas. I hope to study social media and journalism as it relates to art culture and fashion media. I know that I need to acquire key skills such as adapting, advertising, marketing, computer, social media,
I need to take chances, which means moving away from my comfort zone and making certain choices that make or break. I am collaborative, organized and flexible. These two skill are excellent to have a good hold on. I should focus on acquiring communication, fundraising and business skills. I will be raising venture capital for a for-profit solo venture. If I work hard, take the right classes and acquire these skills combined with the ones I already have, then I will be on the right track.
One day I hope to be sitting in my own studio, blogging about my fascinating life and selling my own art work from my adorable privately owned boutique.
