PAB Feature: Marina Garvey

6:00:00 PM

Marina Garvey is a perfectly ambitious woman currently residing in El Paso, Texas. She is currently stationed there with her husband. 

She is the owner and operator of SimplyWrapped shop , where she makes handcrafted wire wrapped jewelry. SimplyWrapped shop originally came about when Marina was having a conversation with her mother-in-law about hobbies. She explained that she has multiple chronic illnesses and that wire wrapping was her creative outlet. 

When she is not working on her business, she likes to talk to her friends (who happen to also be artists), or she's at doctor's appointments. 

Q & A with Marina
Q: Have you ever been told you were too ambitious?
A: I have been told I was too ambitious, but I didn't listen!

Q: Do you think it is good or bad to have dreams you may never accomplish? Why?

A: The right amount of motivation to try something new and adventurous. 

Q: What makes you perfectly ambitious?

Q: What inspires you?
A: Other artists inspire me, along with random creative thoughts :)

Q: Who is another perfectly ambitious woman that you admire?
A: My mother is someone I strongly admire. She's not afraid to go after something she wants. 

Q: What are your future goals?
A: One day I'd like to open up a storefront for SimplyWrapped. I also hope to sell my jewelry in all 50 states along with as many countries as possible.

A: Being asked to be a featured artist on Gaia Collective and selling in several other countries.
