Stefani’s Advice to Future LI Best Artists:
“Don’t let anyone try and steer you away from art as they believe it’s not lucrative enough. Don’t necessarily think you need to attend expensive, private art schools either. You can create art at any age, any time, there’s no ticking clock that you need to be successful and published by a specific age or you’re doomed. Don’t let people take the fun out of something you’re passionate about with their capitalistic lens.”
