Meet Rosa Veliky
Before discovering surface pattern design I had recently quit my full time job and had taken a part time job. I knew I needed to do something artistic, and that I couldn’t sit in my little cubicle desk for one more minute. At the time I thought that creative endeavor would be calligraphy, but I was mostly just taking the time to practice and take classes.
At first what held me back was the price. I had never purchased anything that expensive for myself before. And for whatever reason, wasn’t sure if I deserved to spend that kind of money on it.
After taking the course, I feel like I’m in a new head space. I don’t (usually) compare myself to others, but rather celebrate them. I truly believe, maybe for the first time in my life, that I can do anything. I may not have all the answers, or know where I’m going, but I know I can figure it out.
Through the course I met kind, and brilliant woman. Who are doing the dang thing. They’ve given me hope that if they can make beautiful things happen, I can too.
Since completing the course I love sharing my work. Before, I would keep things so close and not share with anyone. I don’t know if it was to protect my ego, or that I wasn’t proud of the work I was making. But now I am. It feels good, and I welcome feedback. And I’m so okay with pitching my work and having it turned down…because eventually, someone will say yes!
To someone on the fence about taking this course….if the thought of it lights you up or makes you nervous, do it. You’re worth this and so much more.
