Hello! I’m Patricia Kouttab, fellow creative entrepreneur.  I’m an artist, entrepenuer, writer, youtuber, seller of creative stuff and lifelong learner. I know that’s a ton of titles but honestly, that’s part of my nature as a creative. Years ago, I worked a 9-5 job as a graphic designer, sat in hours of frustrating DMV traffic and had to beg for time off for things like going to the doctor or actually taking a vacation. I made a bold move and decided to go freelance. Which worked out great for awhile but I slowly realized graphic design wasn’t my passion anymore and I started to turn to painting and to more traditional ways of being creative, and even some exciting new ones.  Today, I’m still trying to figure out what I really want to be when I grow up and I thought I’d share this adventure with you.

My mission for this blog is to share with you my journey of learning about the world of creatives and how we can make our passions a huge part of our lives (in other words, actually make a living from it!).  Whatever your creative passion is, I hope this helps you in some way by learning from the others that I interview here, reading about my creative endeavors, or by giving you the support you need to keep going! If you have a story to share, I’d love to hear it.

Fun Fact about Patricia: I love Nature (as you’ll see from my paintings!) and I’m fascinated with hawks so when I see them it gives me a little motivational boost just when I least expect it! That’s why my company is called Hawk & Vine Design.
