Isabella and Drew photographed above with Isabella's portraits.
Isabella Taylor started painting when she was just 1 year old, and loved it "paint is a wonder to me, I can’t quite understand it but I really love it" says Isabella.
At 6 years old Isabella decided that she wanted to interview inspirational people and paint their portraits to help encourage other kids to follow their dreams.
“I started painting when I was 1 and I really loved it! I also love doing abstract painting, I like that it can turn out with stuff in it, like once I did a painting and it had a mermaid in it and I really liked it and I thought – how did that get in there? I think it’s a living thing paint, because how does it get that shape, in whatever shape it would form. How the paint forms in the air. So say there was a blob on the brush and then it like formed a head, arms, tail….. paint is a wonder to me, I can’t quite understand it but I really love it.”
Isabella reached out to our founders Drew and Troy in the hope that she could paint their portrait and conduct an interview.
“One thing I have to say is – I love Nexba, I love the name, I love the drink! When I saw the video of Drew and Troy and how they got started, I was in! They are worthy and have earned the prize and deserve it.”
Painting a portrait is one thing, but managing to capture a person and their character is a very hard thing to do. I think its safe to say that the whole Nexba team was blown away by this 6 year olds ambition and talent, and we hope you are too.
Isabella hopes to be a vet when she is older and help "even the most dirtiest or grubbiest ones" she would also love to be an artist.
