In a world dominated mostly by digital art, Pearl Choco‘s handmade artworks of love continue to create fascinating adventures, delightful experiences, and profitable venture from those who take risks.
Two years in a corporate world has been Pearl Choco’s stepping stone in finding a career that best suits her personality. “I maybe disobeyed my parents to take up finance, but I would never built enough courage to socialize and do business,” she explains. Pearl is a Finance graduate with a creative soul on his heart. “I sacrificed my love for art to pursue a business course due to its flexibility. I have loved art for as long as I could remember and I’m still in love with it. My vision of a relaxing weekend would be in a cafe on a rainy day, drinking a hot cup of coffee, and doodling away my thoughts,” she smiles. If accounting and finance, together with art and design, is something that you also love, then Pearl Choco’s story of inspiration will take us to a leap of faith to answer the greatest question to herself: “How far will passion can take you?”
“Life itself inspires me, not only the good days but the bad ones too. I write about life and I have a little wish that people would be encouraged,” says Pearl Choco, who makes up Snapper Doodles, that came from her reckless idea.“ After my first lettering work in Iloilo this 2014, I continued to do more until unknowingly, I’ve been making one artwork a day. I then began posting them on Instagram to share my thoughts and works to the world, hoping that it would inspire readers. As I write my quotes, I keep in mind that it would be something most of us would be able to relate to, because I want Snapper Doodles to be an inspirational art blog.”
These practical decisions became a life-changing way to execute an idea that speaks to her style and self, promising that she will create an intelligent action on her 22nd birthday. “I made a promise on my birthday to take try SnapperDoodles for a year, no matter how reckless the idea.” At present, Pearl is currently involved in bazaars with her craft shop, TinyTreasuresPH, by spreading the creativity of Filipinos through the bottlecap accessories she makes. TinyTreasurePH is a platform that helps showcasing traditional handmade art by local artists. The shop now sells doodle notebooks, quotebags, art prints, stickers and other souvenirs that are locally produced. Other than that, she is also active in freelance works from those who are in need of creative invites, posters, banners, chalkboard, and window designs.
