"I love drawing women from all around the world because I really like different cultures and different backgrounds," says Nyla Hayes, an artist whose life would change for the better at such a young age.
Hayes’ desire to display fair representation in her artwork allowed her to make a strong connection with people all around the world. Soon , Haye’s “long neckies” art took off.
Long neckies are an NFT, or digital art collection, that Hayes created. The collection gained popularity in 2021, and Hayes became a multi-millionaire. The concept of this collection is women with long necks, inspired by Hayes’ fascination with the long-necked Brontosaurus dinosaur.
The success this young artist has reached wouldn’t have been possible without the help of her mom, who supplied her daughter with the equipment she needed to make the art, and encouraged her to display it online.
Our passions can become a source of income from us, no matter how young (or experienced) we are. When we support each other’s gifts and talents, we open the door to our own liberation. Solidarity is priceless.
