Key Takeaways

“Never give up, even when you are overwhelmed by the amazing artists on social media. Whatever you do, just put it out there, you will improve each time!”

  • Bea loves storybooks and reads at least one story per day!
  • Bea has one publishing agent, for developing her career and other agents who bring smaller jobs
  • Best learning Bea was from her teacher Gabriela Delloso: “Less is more”
  • With her husband, Bea makes their own watercolors – they use different pigments for recipes from the internet and they use materials from their travels to create their own palettes!
  • Working with the team is the best learning for Bea. If you work on traditional piece, you are in your own bubble, but in a team, you have to be in constant communication and being able to accept feedback
