Making the World Beautiful One Painting At a Time: Mariel Paat

“I’ve realized that if I truly want to pursue an artistic career, then I have to be comfortable with being uncomfortable.”


Making art more than just a passion but a career, Mariel would’ve never thought a career as a painter would be anything she could actually choose. It wasn’t until she took her first painting class in college as a way to jump ahead in credits that she found her passion. With a little help from her art teacher at the time she applied to study abroad for a year in Italy where she would live life and study art.

Captivated by Mariel’s passion for art and her dope vibe as this chill, down to earth chick who is in love with her culture. We had the chance to meet and speak about her passions and what it takes to live life as an artist.


Thank You Megan Thee Stallion: Here's Why Im Having a Hot Girl Summer

I’m sure you’e all seen the hashtag #HotGirlSummer and if you haven’t let me introduce you to it. #HotGirlSummer is being used mostly for cute outfit pics but also for women achieving their goals, whatever they happen to be.

"It's about women and men being unapologetically them, just having a good-ass time, hyping up their friends, doing you," Megan Thee Stallion explained to The Root when asked about the phenomenon. "You definitely have to be a person who can be the life of the party and just a bad bitch."
