Artists, Engineers, and Entrepreneurs: ...

For many years, local artist Pat Chapman's beautiful talent was hidden out of fear. She began playing with art as a teenager and even spent time as an oil portrait artist in her thirties, but she was afraid that people wouldn't like her paintings. It wasn't until last year, after constant encouragement from her husband, that Pat truly embraced her gift and began taking classes and working with an art coach. 

This episode of Artists, Engineers, and Entrepreneurs (ae2) explores how Pat conquered her fear by surrounding herself with a community of artists and how she is giving back to that community.

Every artist, engineer, and entrepreneur that has been a part of creating a successful business, small or large, has taken a unique path and has a valuable story to share. But we often only hear stories about how the Elon Musks or Steve Jobs of the world brought their ideas to fruition. While these are valuable narratives, there’s still “unsung heroes” whose stories of creativity, grit, and perseverance need to be heard. Thus, we created Artists, Engineers, and Entrepreneurs (ae2), a Web-series from Hiller Measurements shot at our Town Hall studio in Austin, TX, as a platform to tell these stories.
