“At times, theindustry that can be very unforgiving for up and coming talent. There are times when people will tell you they hate your work and you put your all into it. So to feel appreciated for something that I feel so passionate about is invigorating. It makes me want to continue to show people what I have to offer because if one out of ten people like it, I will continue to do it.”
Congratulations Raeana! She will be showing her pieces in Denmark and Hong Kong in the coming months.
