I am 27 years old and have lived in Arizona for most of my life now. I have always considered myself an artist whether it be making jewelry when I was younger, painting nail designs and even when I became an esthetician. When the lockdown began and I left my career as an esthetician I wanted a hobby to keep me busy and thus started my experimentation with resin. Before I knew it I was already doing my first local event and I just kept improving and changing the style of my products. I am so proud of what I have created and what keeps me going is meeting so many beautiful people and creators.

Meet Anna Filova! A Slovak artist living in Brno, Czech Republic. Before she started painting at the end of 2018, she didn't believe she could paint. She knew how to draw and even drew some portraits from time to time…. But she couldn’t even imagine what a great passion painting would become in her life, once she start! After starting with fluid acrylics this art passion has opened her eyes and since then she is creating every free moment she has discovering herself along the way.

Meet Micha Mayotte! Foundress + CEO of CreatiProcess with a passion for helping moms reclaim joy + reconnect to their creativity, without needing to take tons of time away from their families.

That's where CreativProcess comes in."
Meet Nicolette Thuy Hoang! "I am 13, and I’m Asian-American (Vietnamese). Since I was a baby, I’ve had a lot of health issues, whether it’s my severe asthma or being a preemie. I’m a pretty introverted person, so I stay inside a lot. Like, A LOT. I use that time to do the things I love, like draw (of course), read, write, play the violin and piano, and sleep (I like to sleep almost as much as I like to draw hehe). When I actually go outside and get fresh air, I like to play soccer, ski, go on runs, go to the beach, and hang out with my family. I really like traveling with my family, seeing new things, and eating new food. At the end of the day, I’m still a teenager, who really, really likes to draw and do anything creative."
