Today marks 11 years since I started up the Olivia Beaumont fine art brand!
I am so grateful to have made a living doing what I truly enjoy. I graduated with a degree in art in 2009 and made a bold move from west coast California to east coast Georgia. I had nothing but a few suitcases full of clothes, sketchbooks, and paint tubes. My first studio furniture was cardboard boxes. They wern't even my cardboard boxes, they were borrowed. That is straight-out-of-college-poor level! I bought a little easel I found on craigslist for fifty bucks. I decided to open an Etsy shop on April 25, 2010 and that is where my efforts started to take off. That was a staggering and exciting year!
I chose to believe in myself, but I'm even more greatful for the family around me that believed in me and supported me.
I am just as excited about where the Olivia Beaumont brand is headed today! April has been all about making the new studio my art home, and starting a secret new art collection! I cannot wait to show you what May will bring. I am painting something you have never seen from me and you are going to love it!
