She balances career and passion
Are you looking for inspiration in balancing professional career and passion?
Look no more because MB Life found another talented individual we can all get inspiration from—Ariana Limin, a 25-year-old interior designer who creates beautiful resin works.
“I love art, design, and painting. My art/designs have always been inspired by nature such as the ocean, koi fish, flowers, etc.,” she says in an exclusive interview with MB Life. “I find that there’s beauty even in the smallest of things—things that we see every day and don’t take advantage of.”
Because of her background as a former designer in a furniture company, Ariana has been exposed to the use of resin. And this piqued her interest in creating artistic works using this medium.
“I started doing resin sometime last year, during the lockdown. I was getting so bored and running out of things to do that it was the perfect time to experiment on some resin projects,” she says. “At first, I started making small projects for my resin business ranging from coasters to mirrors. But then I decided I wanted to do something different that people haven’t explored that much yet.”
From then, Ariana started making 3D resin paintings, including beautiful resin bags. Girls who are into vintage and preserved flower designs will surely love her works.
“They are created by layers of resin and paint to create depth. Making these paintings is time-consuming. It requires a lot of effort and patience because one piece could take at least a week to finish, but the results are worth it,” she says.
And just like most artists that are balancing professional life and artistic passion, she admits that finding time for resin art is challenging. “Balancing work and passion can be very difficult. Also, with everything that is happening around us, these can really take a toll on people. And I find that working on my resin projects helps get my mind off things,” she says. “Regardless, whether you have a full-time job or not, if you find something you love and would want to work on with, just go for it. It won’t be easy, but you’d be surprised about the things you could accomplish in the future.”
