- About The Artist
My name is Sloan and I am the creator behind Nerdy Artists. I started this brand when I was 17 years old just before starting my freshman year at Temple University. I struggled to get started as a creator because of how much time I had to put into school. Over the summer of 2018 I decided to take a gap year from school. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to study and I felt lost and very unprepared to go back for my sophomore year. Soon after deciding on taking a gap year, I decided to move out of my parents house in the suburbs to a studio apartment right in Center City.
Since starting my gap year, I have redefined what Nerdy Artists is to me. It is simply a place for me to create. Whether it’s photography, film making, gaming, illustration, or even something I haven’t discovered yet, Nerdy Artists is my home base and a place for my friends, family, and fans to see what’s going on in my life. It’s a place for me to express myself and share my work and to have the time of my life doing it.
I am not a full time artist. I do some freelance graphic design and illustration work and I also am a business major at the Community College of Philadelphia. I do my best to keep up with my YouTube and stream schedule in my free time. It's not a perfect system, it's hard to keep up with, but if it's what I have to do to share my work, then it's worth it to me.
