Achampong says she was speaking to a friend who is an emerging artist was trying to find a gallery to host her work. However, nowhere would feature her art without her having experience or already being known.

Achampong decided she could set up an online website that would be friendly to arts newcomers. Not only would it help those who need to get there name out there but it would be great for people who are too intimidated to go to an art gallery.
