Four years ago, we posted the story of Taylor Ann Linko's wedding gown. Then there's a whole other story of what happened afterward. The newlyweds moved to San Diego, and Linko was having trouble turning her art into income.
We thankfully were given a free honeymoon and enough gift/saving money to get us through June…. then July………. things are getting tight now, August, not a single sale in the new city, September….. my time was running out. Trying to be a good wife, trying to get a gig face painting, or a sale at a craft fair, or into a gallery.
I had been so blessed my whole life to chase my dream, to try and be an Artist but time was running out.
I needed to contribute to the bills. No money to fund any new art ventures, no sales, “no followers”, no income, no hope left.
But then someone shared a photograph of her colorful wedding dress, and everything changed. The viral wedding pictures led to a full-time business customizing dresses and selling painted gowns. See more of Linko's work in her gallery. -via reddit
