🌺 My art career, how did I get started? I always knew I wanted to make arts. I started very young with drawing and creating small sculptures. Because my parents moved a lot and my mom loved interior design stores and fashion. In other words, I spend most of my time as a kid in stores between fantastic, furniture, wallpapers, curtains and clothing.
🌵Because we moved regularly I started designing ideas for my new bedroom. However, I guess I was about 4/5 years old. In 1st year, my teacher taught me how to sew. Above all, I remember loving it, and I decided to become a fashion designer. I could only sew manually. Soon, I started making designs for my dolls and design my suits for Carnaval, etc. I even made small fashion shows for my designs, with my barbies. In short, my mom made me stop doing this. I guess it had a lot to do with the fact I was not doing well in school.
🌬️ After that my best friends sister, her friend was already in art school. He thought me how to make jewellery. Designing from paper and beans. How to use negative spaces and I loved it.
🌟 At a certain point, I stopped doing everything that had something to do with the arts. In order to learn a real job, aka doing hotel school to become a waitress. Right after that it went completely downwards and lost myself.
My art career, how did I get started?
However, my previous boss picked me up and believed in my talents. He owned an advertisement agency and I started to work for him. Therefore he thought me the basics of advertisement and how to sell. So I got a great job offer at TWBA and refused it. Because I wished to go to art school and learn how to make arts.
🎫 Applying to the art communications department. In other words, I found myself exploring many sides of the art field. Being unable to choose what I wanted, I got sucked into the autonomous arts department. In order to earn money, I did some modelling and graphical jobs on the side.
In addition, the photographers thought me how to shoot, to work the light, the camera and the image, how to use photoshop and use Lightroom.
Moving to France
🌹After my exchange at ENSBA, Paris, I started an internship with Kristina Benjocki. She thought me more about professionalising my art practice.
I decided to move to France. I missed the movement of the city, I have my current boyfriend there. Sadly, with no clients, no friends, and not being able to speak in French I found myself really stuck.
To get fully integrated, learn the language and get the rights for the social care system in France. Starting at LIDL helped me greatly to immigrate and my career grew fast. Until the point, I realised I was following the wrong career path.
🐶 Recently I quitted, to get fully into my art practice. Now I am fully integrated and ready to work.
