How does it feel to run a small creative business?

Running a small creative business is never easy.

Are you affected by current situation?

With the current situation, I lost my part time job. It opened up a lot of time to focus on my business. Of course, the sales of my art are slowed down a lot, but I’m trying to work as hard as I can on other things so when everything comes back to normal I will already have a lot of work done.

What are you working on at this moment?

I’m working very hard to get my online store going. It is a great time right now to sell online. I am very excited about that! I also have a bunch of new collections coming, I’ve been working on many different types of canvases and pieces. A lot is going to happen in the coming months!

What is the best way for people to get in touch with you these days?

The best way to get in touch at the moment is by Instagram, Facebook or email, until my online store is ready : insta and Facebook @vsartshop website :www.vsartshop.com email : info.vsartshop@gmail.com

Do you like springtime? Would you like to share your secret tips what to do with this special amount of free time most of us got?

I absolutely love springtime! As much as I love winter and the snow (probably my favorite season) when springtime comes and the sun is out, weather is nice, we get to go outside and do so many different things! It is inspiring! I am feeling very creative, have a lot of ideas right now and I happen to have a lot of time with the current situation. I would recommend everyone that has been affected by the situation to make the most of their time. We are always running out of time in life. Take these few weeks to spend some time doing things you want to do but never, catch up on stuff that you were supposed to do… So cheesy but very true. I am still having a thought for the people that are alone in these times too.
