Business Name : Inner Worlds
Years in business : 2
Brief bio: I am a self-taught Mixed Media artist.
Dreamer. Lover. Passionate. Gratitude Warrior. Bookaholic. Cook. Art Journaler...
I would never have thought that painting and creativity would be in my daily life and even less my business until not so long ago. I believe that nothing happens by coincidence and so that I do have powerful messages to share through what I create. I am a Mixed Media artist because my heart and soul need to play and discover all the time and Mixed Media allows me to mix and match techniques and materials.
My artwork usually represents strong whimsical women (that I called «Nixies») who have a positive message to deliver to the world, to you. I believe in the important power of Positive Affirmations and of Gratitude, that both guide me in my creative process. I am a life-long learner, and love to unravel new ways to make my path lighter and stronger. Healing is a huge part of my life path, I am now also a Practical Reiki Master and noticed how it shifted the way it affects my creativity and the entire process of it.
I am also an art journaler and is currently a teacher in the art journaling collaborative playground 21 Secrets that opened its doors in April 2012.
The hardest part at year 2 of your business is….
I currently am in this year 2 of business, or so. The hardest part right now is to find new ways to market what I have to offer and to have my customers to come back and buy something else.
My testimonials and feedbacks are good, but there seems to have something missing that I still need to figure out. I know I will eventually (figure this out) but sometimes, looking at my shop stats and not getting depressed because of what I see is hard.
I have faith in my artwork, and in the fact that it can touch people. Not everyone for sure, as my style is whimsical and my Nixies are far from looking realistic. But I know there are some women (and men too) that feel empower by my messages. I just have to find them, or let them find their way to me.
Again, it’s about commitment to my business and trust.
