Working in the Spotlight as a Live Painter

This week, we’re welcoming Ruth Oneya of Ruth Oneya illustrations. Ruth is an artist who creates live paintings for weddings. Ruth’s business really started to grow when one of her TikTok videos went viral, but that success created the (good) problem of having too many emails (hiring an assistant has really helped). We also discuss why she doesn’t use watercolor for live paintings, and how an introvert copes with working around lots of people.
