Finding Your Side-Hustle – Entrepreneurship in Rural Maine
January 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
In this session, Betsey N. Brown-Benner of Maine Fae Art will be telling the story of the development and opening of her small, commission art business.
Betsey is a 21-year-old woman from Downeast Maine. From a young age, Betsey was exposed to the arts and it became her passion. In her adult life, she believed there was a need to support niche art and pursued her dream of starting her own side business. When asked “What is it about your art that makes you want to take this approach,” she responds, “It allows it to be more personal. My personal art isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, however, if I can create a commission that someone loves and that is centered around their ideas, I am happy. That happiness is something I am determined to share.”
