Ever since I can remember, I've been drawn to the arts. I even started an art business when I was in high school, giving classes to neighborhood kids as my summer job. My recent move to becoming a stay-at-home mom revitalized my passion for art and afforded me some time to spend on projects that had been placed on the back burner.
Just like most small businesses, it began as a hobby - nesting around my own home and making custom paintings and murals for friends. Before long, I was getting requests from folks in our community that heard I was willing to barter and trade for custom paintings. I decided to make it official and start charging people by the square foot... that just seemed to create more demand.
