Remain a student — when you approach every day with curiosity and an eagerness to learn, your art journey (and life in general) becomes much easier and more interesting.
Regain your sense of purpose — you may want to set aside some introspective time to remember why you started down the path you’re on. Was it for fame? For money? To help others? To make a difference? To feel happy? What was the core driving force? Go back to that as you forge ahead and you’ll feel a renewed sense of energy.
Release your fear of judgment — bid it adieu because it’s only holding you back. It’s not the worst thing to be judged by others … they will judge you regardless of your best or mediocre efforts … what’s worse is letting the fear of being judged prevent you from trying what you want to do. Free yourself of that burden and create for yourself.
Hi there, I am Mansi, a self-taught artist based in Silicon Valley.
I was a full-time communications professional for two decades, with a desk job and a six-figure salary until I decided to become a mom.
Motherhood, as many will attest, can be extremely exhausting, especially in those first years. Art became my quiet place. It restored my sense of self. It gave me renewed energy. It helped me become a better mom.
I was led down the path of creation by instinct and “discovered“ in early 2019 by a fellow kindred spirit at one of my art pop-ups who asked me to join her entrepreneurial venture. While I immersed myself full time in the role of CFO and co-founder of this women-led venture supporting local women makers, I missed experimenting with mixed-media. So, in 2021, I've decided to focus my energies full time in finessing my craft, producing more online tutorials and offering in-person art workshops for both adults and children.
Thank you for joining me on this adventure as I experiment, learn and continue creating custom pieces of joy.
