16-Year-Old Artist Turns Her Wildest Dreams Into Paintings

These paintings are the work of 16-year-old Dimitra Milan, who started painting just 4 years ago. Daughter to two artists, Milan was exposed to art from a young age, and even chose to be homeschooled so that she could dedicate more time to her training. Now an early high-school graduate and professional painter, Milan shared some of her thoughts about her parents:

“The most important advice I received is the demonstration of a work ethic,” Milan told MyModernMet. “They taught me that you don’t always have to be in the mood to paint. You just paint. Every day, for eight or nine hours straight just like any other career choice. Like everything else in life, it’s hard work, passion, and commitment that will make you successful. They not only told me these things, but they also demonstrate it in their own life and art careers.”
