I love the outdoors nature and art.
I am venturing into the art business to add to my income.
I work as a Legal Assistant, the salary i earn from this job is my main source of income
My business plan is to sell framed African Art pieces to supplement my income.
I will be selling framed African Batik Art pieces. See https://www.ebay.com/b/African-Batik/165462/bn_71609777
