It is scary to leave a salaried job to pursue your passion not knowing if you’ll get money out of it or find out that it’s a terrible job to earn money, however Turkish artist Sena Runa did it, she left her HR specialist job to pursue her passion in creating these amazing paper art known as Quilling.
Quilling or paper filigree is a form of art that involves the use of paper strips that are rolled, shaped and glued together to create an amazing decorative designs. This is what Runa said on her current full-time work :
“Everything you create could be art, so if you believe that you make beautiful things, then you’ll see that everyone will agree. I am new in the art career (I’ve been a full-time working artist for 7 months), sometimes I feel scared and sometimes I don’t. I just believe in what I do and I know I’ll continue to create in the future.”
