My name is Thaisy Marin, and I’m an artist from Puerto Rico. I knew I wanted to become an artist at a very young age. I used to have problems expressing myself with words, and art has been the best way for me to communicate my feelings, thoughts and desires without revealing them explicitly. The sense of secrecy between the artwork and the artist is what makes me love the pieces I create so much. My dream is to become an art professor and a studio artist. Meanwhile, I’m a waitress in a small town of Puerto Rico, who enjoys going to the movies, sightseeing and spending time with my dog and my fiancé.
Where I’m from it’s very hard to become a successful artist, especially if you don’t paint about the Puerto Rican traditions and culture. I’ve experienced rejection in major doses, but at the end of the day being an artist is what makes me happy. It just feels like I’m doing what I was meant to do. So I keep going because I believe in myself and I know that eventually I’ll meet my goals.
I heard about Wix from a fellow classmate who recommended it for art portfolios. That was about two years ago. I created a basic website, but about a month ago I decided to take it to the next level. I knew exactly what I wanted and creating it with Wix was very easy, as well as getting my own domain.
The best thing about Wix is that you can create a well personalized website with easy tools. If you can think of it, you can definitely make it possible. It’s pretty awesome.
People usually comment that it looks very professional and elegant. They always ask which website builder I used 😉 Some got inspired and started their own Wix websites.
