On this episode I talk to Nina Maric, the artist behind the brand Chic on Paper – an illustration business. Nina also specializes in portraits, animations, brand work and anything that involves bringing out beauty in art form.
She will be sharing her back-story, how drawing is not just work but a meditative process that helps her relax and also some of the challenges she’s faced as a freelancer.
She mentions that there is no such thing as perfection and the reason why people are low on confidence is because of the fear of not attaining perfection. At the end of episode she offers advice and tips to help people who are passionate about art that can be applied to many other careers as well.
It is such an insightful conversation; you don’t want to miss out!
