Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in arts but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Alice Zilberberg, an internationally acclaimed, award-winning artist based in Tel Aviv, Israel.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I'm an artist. My customers are collectors of art around the globe.
Tell us about yourself
I've been an artist all of my life. For over a decade, I've been developing my own distinctive technique for creating photo-based digital paintings, where photography is only the beginning of the final artwork. The works are comprised of many photographs and carry a variety of elements such as colour, toning, manipulation, and painting. I often travel across the globe to record different backgrounds and elements for the work.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My work has been displayed in galleries across North America, Europe, and Asia. I've been interviewed and featured in publications and platforms such as MTV, Breakfast Television, and CBC. My work has won over forty international awards, including Hasselblad Masters, and 1st place titles in competitions such as the International Photography Awards, the Julia Margaret Cameron Awards, and the Fine Art Photography Awards.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
You really have to keep going, even at times when you're out of the flow of creating.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Perseverance, courage, and a love for what you do are all crucial to being a full-time artist.
