Las Vegas, NV
I would use the prize money to save for a commercial building that would hold multiple private studios for independent artists to run their business and thrive in their craft.
Being some what of an introvert, I’ve found it more comfortable to work by myself and really allow my artistry and energy to reflect on my work and environment. I would love to give other artists the same opportunity. There’s tons of city’s that lack the concept of studio salons and shops. I would start in Las Vegas and eventually franchise in other cities. I’ve found that many individuals would prefer a private environment to get a service done, whether it’s hair, nails, massage etc.
