Happy Feature Friday!
We are so excited to feature Jane of Red Letter Day! Everything from her calligraphy to her artwork is just so dreamy! Always a creative at heart, we love Jane’s journey. We also love her outlook on encouraging other creators by being open to share her tips of the trade. When we started doing these features, we realized that no matter how many of the same type of creator we had, everyone’s work was incredibly unique. It’s nice that we can help each other on the road to achieving our dreams, and Jane does just that. Read on to learn more about Jane’s life and the future of Red Letter Day!
: Tell us a little about yourself.
: Hi! I’m Jane Gahng and I’m 36 years old. I’m an artist out of Pasadena, CA. Pretty much do all my work from home and I absolutely love it. I started drawing and painting from a really young age and begged my mom to put me into the afterschool art class in 4th grade. This was my first outside of school assignment art class and I loved it! I learned basics of oil painting, acrylics, watercolor, drawing,….etc. But the real training started when I was in junior high, my mom found a studio of an artist that taught young kids and teenagers like me. She taught me the skills and was pretty strict about finishing assignments. Plus it was always amazing to me that she was an artist that had artwork everywhere in her studio and was showing in galleries all over the world. She even let me paint some things onto one of her large pieces! From there I went to night classes at Art Center in Pasadena during high school and decided to save up money and go to Pasadena City College –> Long Beach State –> Italy to study art for a year abroad. Since then, I’ve dabbled in working in corporate America but I always turn back to doing artwork. Can’t seem to get away from it!
