Earn from Personalised Artworks & Crafts

When we were young, we used to create some arts and crafts in school. Some are really gifted with talents to draw, paint, carve, and create artworks and crafts. Some might have followed their passion and earned a living from it. But more often than not, this artistic talent is put into sleep as we go on with our adult life and find a different career path.

I couldn’t help but admire Jakeh Montemayor on how she is using her talent to earn an extra income. She works as a document controller in a construction consultancy firm in Dubai. A very hardworking woman, she uses her free time to create some arts and crafts and profit from it.

Her artistic talents started to manifest at a very young age of 5. She recalled that her first drawing was a malunggay leaf. Upon growing up, she has improved her artistic skills. Aside from drawing, she loved to create artworks from scrap materials.

Profiting from Her Talent

She started earning money from her crafts when she was in college. She made scrapbooks and sold it for a hundred pesos each. After college, she ventured into selling personalized caricatures. While having full-time work, she earned extra income from painting wall murals and making invitation cards, party giveaways, etc.

Even now, in Dubai, Jakeh creates some personalized artworks and sell it for a fee. Having a full-time job doesn’t stop her from making these beautiful creations. She loves doing it as a pastime and is enjoying it much. She expresses herself thru her creations. Her artworks have provided her with an additional income flow since her younger years up until now. Sometimes she makes arts and crafts for her friends and family as a gift on special occasions.
