Get in touch with Karly
“Take care of yourself, your mind, body and emotions! When you take care of yourself, it will show a lot in your work!”
- Karly shares she has had issues with anxiety and mental health for a long time and it forced her to take a break from her school. When she did that and started to take care of herself more, her art started getting better as well. It is very important to be aware of the challenge.
- Karly talks about how to increase engagement for your art on Instagram and that is by giving thoughtful comments on other people’s art to start meaningful conversations
- When finding your style, Karly advises to pay attention to what you like, get inspiration from artists you follow and make those things part of your own work and eventually you will find your voice.
