Anyone who has tried to make a career from a passion will know that few are tougher to make a breakthrough in than art. Though it is all about creativity and expression, art is a highly competitive field in which many have tried and only few have succeeded. The best advice to aspiring artists, therefore, is to take the bull by the horns and let your enthusiasm and creativity do the talking for you. As in many careers, you may have to make some sacrifices along the way and do more for less until you are an established name, but those with the true drive to share their work and reach an audience will eventually succeed. Young Estepona artist impresses One young artist who shows the way is Ana Torralba. Not quite 30 years old, she has indeed taken the bull by the horns, letting her creative energy flow and producing an exciting body of work that is growing all the time and would put many a much more experienced artist to shame. A graduate of the Madrid Faculty of Fine Arts, Ana is above all a natural talent, as skilled at creating evocative paintings and murals as she is at photography and video.
