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.”
— MARIEL PAAT
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.
