We caught up with our dear friend Andrea Smith, who is no stranger to Some Girls. She recently made the leap from the retail/ freelance hustle to full-time freelance.
We had to ask her a question that almost everyone wonders.
Freelance— everybody seems to be doing it, but how?
Andrea says she's figuring it out as she goes, but we noticed that Andrea knows how to make a connection. She recognizes the people that have supported her art and knows that's where it begins. In return she also supports other artist. As we talked and looked through her paintings, her trinkets & jewelry, she told us stories about each piece. The pierced shell earrings she wears are from a fellow artist, Kat Stankewicz (@soft_blonde). The painted earrings are made by Ariel Kellogg (@ariel.m.k). Her ability to create a community by supporting her friends and other artist will naturally allow her to strive as a freelancer.
