Art, Work, and Life with Ileana Haberman

Ileana Haberman is an artist and small business owner. She loves her art. In her words, her art is what she has to do— she doesn’t have a choice. And her business supports her art and allows her a life where she gets to create art.

I found her perspective refreshing.

I love hearing from creative about the creative process and what brings them back to their art. I really enjoyed hearing Ileana process why she creates and what it does for her. It’s really quite beautiful.
