I create fashionable hand painted T Shirts of iconic and famous people from Taylor Swift to Spock. Each shirt is custom made to each order.

Tell us about your business.

Growing up, I loved art and decided to pursue it. I focused in painting, drawing and illustration throughout high school and college. My love of art also grew into a love for fashion. The idea of painting t-shirts was inspired by making a Nick Jonas shirt for my younger sister a few years ago. I didn’t think much of it till people started asking for one. The aim of my shirts is to create a unique, truly one of a kind graphic tee. To make shirt that’s edgy and will stand out in any crowd. Each shirt is wearable work of art.

What makes your business stand out?

Everyone now is looking for something unique, that no one else has, especially when it comes to fashion and design lately. Each shirt I create is painted by my own hand- no two shirts are the same.

What's the best business advice you've received?

You don't have to be the first or the best in whatever you do, you just have to be the most persistent. And NEVER give up.
