Chiara talks about being rejected from art school and how this setback didn’t stop her from pursuing her dreams. With the encouragement of her HND lecturers, she was reminded to work hard and keep focused on developing her painting style while also taking a leap into working freelance.
“A lot of the time, my pieces would start with a colour before I even think of the composition, or what’s going on around the character or anything.”
“I just find colours make me very happy and it’s like a form of escape for me. In times where I’ve struggled with something, I know that I can create a bright happy place through my own work.”
