“Just look inside yourself when finding the true inspiration and don’t worry what the other people think. It’s about ‘what’ your painting is, instead of ‘how’ it is!”
- Eeva is currently embarked on a lifelong journey of mastering the oil paints medium. She knows it’s a never-ending learning process and enjoys it very much
- Eeva says about networking, that it’s bit scary, but if you think about it at the conventions there are people with the same interest so striking a conversation is fairly easy
- Eeva wishes she knew how much work it would be to have her own business and it’s always better to be able to talk to likeminded people – other artists and business owners
- Podcast: 1 fantastic week, and their Fantastic workshop
