My mom recently started painting last year. Family, friends, and I noticed that she had a natural talent for art.
Her artwork has been featured in art shows and many people have bought and requested personal pieces from her. So she decided to start her own business. Which is already doing very well! It is really cool to see that she never focuses on the money or the business side of her art… she always focuses on her craft which is what a true artist should do. My mom always expresses that there is always room to grow and that she still has yet to learn.
It is great to see that people believe in my mom and that people believe in her art so much that they are willing to purchase her work and even display her artwork in an art show.
A few months ago my mom decided to submit three of her pieces into the Dutch Art Gallery Show. Which is a very difficult gallery to get into. Only the greatest artists in the Dallas area can get into this gallery and show.
Not only did she get in but all three of her pieces were accepted into the show! Which is such a big deal!! We were so excited for her.
It’s so beautiful and inspiring to see my mom going after her dream and using her talent! My mom has taught me that you can continue doing what you love at any age. To always work hard. To express your feelings and emotions through doing what you love. That there are no boundaries to what you want to do and learn in life.
If you are interested in some of my moms artwork you can view her instagram here- http://www.instagram.com/kaori.nappagallery
There will be a website made very soon.
So proud of you Mamma!
with so much love,
