Without further ado, let’s step in! 👇
Q: What is a personal favorite quote?
A: “I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way—things I had no words for.” – Georgia O’Keeffe
Q: What is your favorite activity when you aren’t working?
A: Painting is my absolute favorite activity, when I’m not painting commissioned pieces though I am working on my own personal art projects. Also, gardening. Nature inspires my art tremendously…
Q: When did you create your business, and what inspired you to start this specific business venture?
A: I lost my job due to Covid so I was kind of thrown into starting my business but looking back, it was a time of healing for me.
Q: Why was it important for you to create your business?
A: I’m the baby of my family. Anyone that is also the baby in their family might be able to understand what I am about to say and that is, I wanted something that was so authentically me.
Q: If you could go back in time and give yourself any advice during the first year of your business, what would it be?
A: Things take time. Ideas, inspiration, ART. Don’t rush yourself.
Q: What is your favorite part about working with/supporting your specific clients?
A: As a creative, there is nothing better than combining two creative minds. When they give me a vision, it’s like a window into their creative process – which only inspires my own process.
Q: Where can our viewers find you?
A: My business page on Instagram is @shopwilderrose, where I feature products and watercolor art. I do have another page, @jilliaanclaire, where I feature acrylics and oils. Additionally, my website is www.wilder-rose.com
Q: What does confidence mean to you?
A: Personally, confidence is about self-reflection and understanding myself, what I want, what I like and dislike, and not apologizing for those things that make me – me.
