Tell us about your business journey

I have started it 2 years ago. Though couldn't work much then. I restarted my work again this year after lockdown. It's been 4 months and I am enjoying my work very much.


What motivated you to become a Skillpreneur?

Deep down I always wanted to paint. When I earned the degree of CA I realised this wasn't my dream. It took me 5-6 years to gather the courage to leave my career as Chartered accountant and become an artist.


How did you know when you had the right idea?

When the famous "Madhuri Dixit" shared my painting and people all over the internet poured so much of love on my work.. I was positive that I am ready to sell my work.


What is your favorite aspect of being a Skillpreneur?

I can earn from something I love dearly!


Share any interesting experience after becoming a Skillpreneur.

I did a painting of miss world 1994, Aishwarya Rai and people went crazy over it. Cant explain the love and respect I got for that particular work.


What makes your business unique?

I make customised paintings. I take reference from a photograph. I can change/edit the background, cloths, jewellery as well from my magical brush and paints.


What Drives You to Keep Going When It's Really Tough?

My family's support and motivation.


What are some of the mistakes you wished you could've avoided?

No regrets!


How do you achieve work-life balance?

With the support and love of my husband and family.


What advice would you give someone who is interested in starting their own business?

Have Patience and Stay Positive!
