keep your eyes on Maya Zankoul as she is an artist on the path to success.
maya is a Lebanese artist who is doing almost everything right to put her work out there, create a name for herself, and make you laugh in the process.
she started by putting her work online and it grew and spilled off into a book, pottery merchandise, and public sessions about blogging, art, and book publishing.
Taking advantage of Social Media to show her work or just keep you up-to-date with what she is working on. The mix of them together is proving to be a force to be reckoned with.
Maya appears to (effortlessly) attend to all the details
