Meet Nupoora! This talented woman has amazing taste in fashion, home decor, and art. Originally from Seattle, Nupoora was doing Beauty Marketing for Nordstrom. She now works at a startup called Udemy.com! She’s making an impact on our world by doing something she loves.
what is UDEMY.COM?
I decided to take a leap back into the startup/tech world and joined an incredible mission-driven education company called Udemy.com where we’re helping democratize access to education. Right now, we have over 7 million students in 190 countries, and I’m incredibly proud of how far we’ve come over the past year! There is nothing more satisfying that waking up everyday and going to a job you absolutely love.
Nupoora recently invited us into her creative and unique apartment for a fun photo shoot! In her home, Nupoora creates her beautiful work in her personal art studio!
WHere did you get inspiration for decorating your house?
I’ve wanted an art studio apartment for as long as I could remember! I’ve been pinning art studio inspiration images, and extracted my ideas from there! There’s also nothing like the Renegade Craft Fair to make you want to deck out your place like an Anthropologie window display!
I am an artist. It’s a statement that’s taken me a while to accept. Nupoora.co started as a small passion project and became a full fledged small business for my artwork. I’ve been painting and drawing since I was little, and this year, I finally decided to make something of it. 100% of the profits from my artwork goes towards microloans for women in other countries through sites like Kiva.com. I am lucky enough to have a wonderful full time job, so this website is my way of trying to make an impact while still doing something I love.
WHat’s your fav painting you’ve ever done?
My favorite painting is called “Sun on my cheek”. It’s a watercolor and pen painting I did late one night a few days before I launched my website. My dear friend just purchased the original, so I know it’s in a safe and loving home 🙂
When did you start renting/lending from style lend?
I started using Style Lend about a year ago after two of my close friends showed up to dinner casually donned in some Alexander McQueen dresses they rented from Style Lend!
WHy do you like the concept of renting vs. buying?
Let’s face it, San Francisco is expensive; we can’t afford to be shopping 24/7, and in addition, we have to be doing our part, no matter how small, to recycle and re-use!
do you have any shopping habits?
I tend to boutique shop online and pop into retail stores when I’m hanging out with my sister!
fav brands/designers? why?
what’s your “dream item” to RENT on style lend?
Style Lend had a stunning deep emerald green Dior bustier dress a few weeks ago! I wish had an excuse to rent it :)!
