We had the good fortune of connecting with Tomas Ponce and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tomas, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I knew I did’t want to work for anyone. It really doesn’t sync with my personality. I also really want to leave something precious behind, and art is just what captures my soul.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m just excited to create, its a wonderful feeling. That brings happiness. How I got here, I really have no clue. I live day by day, and follow my own journey. As for the challenges, I just convince myself that I can get pass anything. Not saying its easy, because it’s not. I would say my mother really helped out. The way she over came every challenge. Convinced me that its possible. I would say one thing I would like people to remember from me, is to be you in all that you do. I find that very important. I can’t stress it enough. It is possible to get to your destination your own way. Its been done before.
