Michelle Armas is living proof you can combine talent, authenticity and business savvy with fine art. I LIKE her (insert thumbs up here!) She has a great story about how she got started with her life “online.” Michelle has been smart when it comes to selling art and promoting her brand. (Yes, a fine artist cannot ignore good branding!) She talks about the tools she took away from her (miserable) first job before she threw herself into her painting. She has good things to offer in this interview (how a particular passion fuels her art.) I love that Michelle is showing us that you CAN define yourself in galleries and online. Smart cookie, that Michelle, and sage advice too!
