Is it possible to pursue art and achieve financial stability?
That’s a question that Michelle Favin is beginning to answer. Michelle is an artist based in San Francisco. She uses acrylic and natural pigments in her work and pulls inspiration from her mixed lineage of Korean and American.
In this episode, Michelle opens up about leaving a glamorous and high-octane job in tech to slow down and pursue a risky but fulfilling art career.

Michelle recently released her debut collection “together, here” — an exploration of how we’re connected to Earth, to each other, and to our inner landscapes. All of the pieces use natural pigment and acrylic on raw canvas and 15% of proceeds will be donated to Sogorea Te’ Land Trust,
