Today I bring you an interview with Kelli Maeshiro. When I heard Kelli had moved to the Philippines to try to make art full time, I knew it was a story I would want to share with you. She saved up some money and gave herself two years to try to make a living from her art in Manila. Since moving to Manila she’s already found a market for her paintings, and sold out her first solo show before it even officially opened.

In this interview I ask her how and why she moved to a country she’d never even been to in order to work full time on art. She shares tips on integrating into a new art scene, working with galleries, and running your studio and business, including the many uses of spreadsheets for artists! Love it!
