February 2017 Art Collector of the Month: Eva Smith

Eva by her "La Flor #15" in her boutique Urban Loft in Houma, Louisiana.

Eva tells us about her dream of owning her own clothing store and the struggles and joys in her life.

I love to get to know my art collectors a little bit more, so every month I will be sharing with you the profile of one of them.

The purpose of these interviews is to provide examples of women who have had the courage to follow their heart, some to become mothers, wives, stay at home moms or wives, professionals or entrepreneurs. They did it by overcoming fear of criticism, failure, or both. Each person measures success according to their own dreams, so it is very personal. There is no dream too big or too small. For the month of February, my art collector is: Eva Smith.

- Age: 47

-Location: Larose, Louisiana

-Marital Status: Formerly married

-Kids: My daughter Shay is 25 and son Dante' is 23
