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

Hi Ylenia, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
Hello, My name is Ylenia Mino and I am the founder of PAINT FOR A PURPOSE. We organize painting parties, art classes and we bring smiles to people through Art. We believe that Art is a powerful way to bring joy and peace to people especially in such times as these.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My artistic career as fine artist, fashion model, and actress has been a great adventure! I had so many challenges to the point that at times they seemed impossible to overcome! But the key is to never give up and be creative in every situation you may face.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My favorite spots are definitely Griffith Observatory, Rodeo Drive and the gardens near the Montage in Beverly Hills, and Wayfarers Chapel in Palos Verde!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to dedicate to my shoutout to God and all the people that believed and supported me (and still are) during my journey. I encourage everyone to be all you can be, never limit yourself: DREAM BIG! BE BOLD!
