This is what Payal speaks about her journey as a crafter and her story of being a craftpreneur….
First, I would like to thank you Prika for giving us artist an opportunity to share the hard work and motivation behind every artistic soul.
My self Payal Bhalani, currently I am engraving my artistic skills at New Jersey City University(USA) by doing Master’s in Arts in design crafts. Back in India I did my bachelor’s in civil engineering
I was born in a family where Art is kind of heritage. If I talk about my self my artistic skills developed and found by my father. When I was doing my schooling, my parents keep me motivated by sending me in different art classes like drawing and crafts.
With my graduation I came up with my own creativity and started teaching those craft to kids, classmates and relatives. This is how I started feeding my artistic soul. Eventually it works, and I satisfied as craft teacher but still I want to fly more!! After my graduation as engineer I decided to do something with my arts. So that’s why I choose MA in design craft. I believe that if your passion turns into profession than you can achieve immense success. I left everything which I achieved in India and come to USA to pursue my master’s in arts. As my artistic soul needs more n more, so I started my You tube Channel. I also participate all the challenges. When I was an art teacher I was so much busy with the students and I was not able to come up with my own art pieces. Currently I working as individual artist, I am able explore myself more.
My inspiration is my father. As I said before I got my creativity from him. He is my key when I am stuck with something. As he belongs to jewelry design market he always surprises me with his amazing ideas. Despite of my father I really appreciate artist Marta lapkowaska (Maremi Small Art). Her you tube video also keeps me motivated.
Her Most Favourite:
I can say that I am in love with mixed media. Mixed media has no limitation. We can use lots of mediums and techniques in mixed media which I like the most. I also enjoying scrapbooking and trousseau gift wrapping.
Her Style of Crafting:
As MA student, I also like ceramics and Jewellery designing.
My goal is make a brand of own craft supplies called “BEE KREATIVEE”. I also want to teach my art to society so that way I can help society via one kind of meditation or art therapy. I want to make one place where I can teach, I can sell, and I can show my art to society.
Message for All:
I did a lot experiments with different mediums. I always believe failure comes with innovative ideas. In a project, maybe I failed thousand time but each time either I learn something or came up with better ideas. Always be confident about your project and implementation technique. Trial and error method is my secret. Don’t afraid to try creative ideas. I firmly believe if u apply your ideas without any fear of wasting material or outcome you may come up with far more better project than your imagination.
