Proving that age is not a barrier for Ananya The Artist
For a high school student, she already needs to manage a lot. From school, homework, to commissioned art pieces. Her sister proudly says “It’s Ananya. She loves what she does. She often stays up till 1 am finishing her art.”
When we asked Ananya how she manages, her answer is truthful and beautiful – “I just love art”.
Even though supportive parents and an encouraging sister have been a huge help to Ananya, her own determination to become someone whose work has value – is commendable.
Her first product that strengthened her resolve to be a small businesswoman who wants to sell art online – was her yearly calendar. Each month of the calendar adorned flowers that she painted. It was such a hit, that she made another calendar was the year 2022.
