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

Hi Zuzana, maybe we can start at the very start – the idea – how did you come up with the idea for your business?
I lost my job and I have to find a new one in this pandemic situation. I was always creative, full of energy. I had to find something what can be challenging and creative. As a former art teacher I came up with an idea to make art classes for kids.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Art by Heart is my everything. I’m proudly teaching kids to make art and to be creative. I was starting this little business two months ago and it was easy, because I was filled with energy to start something new. I’ll be happy to have more and more kids to inspire them.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would like to invite them to “the source cafe at the beach” in Hermosa Beach. That’s the place I can get wonderful, healthy food, drinks and desserts.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to thank to my wonderful husband, who’s always supporting me in everything. My friends as well, who where pushing and supporting me to reach my goal.
