22 year old Sasha Herbert embodies the term “art is life”. This week’s young creator took her passion for art and made it her full time job. 🇰🇳
When did you start?
Generally speaking, I always say that I’ve been creating ever since I left the womb. ‘ART’ has been apart of my life for as long as I can remember. As for my brands, ‘Sasha, The Artist’ was created in December 2015 where I painted commissions, illustrated logos and designed posters for clients and partook in exhibitions to display my own paintings. Whereas my main focus now ‘Paint & Sip with Sasha, The Artist’, a unique entertainment experience of painting, cocktails and socializing, was created February 2017.
How did you get interested in it?
Research began in the early months of 2015. I was stuck deciding between going to university or fully committing to an Artist career . Lo and behold, I bumped into the Paint & Sip Industry that deeply inspired me and from there on it was even more research, planning and developing what is now Paint & Sip with Sasha, The Artist for the next two years. . Being an Artist won!
What is your fave part about what you do?
Creating the pieces I get to teach at my events. It’s always fun turning a theme into a piece that people thoroughly enjoy painting themselves. What keeps you inspired? The people! Everyone is always looking out for the next event and even throw out ideas for themes that they are looking forward to paint next.
What advice would you give to other young people that are pursuing your craft?
Organization and time management is KEY! (In any aspect of life really) Keep on top of those and you will definitely thrive.
What’s a random art tip?
Don’t be too hard on yourself.
What are your other interests/hobbies?
