Biz Buzz: Peachy Turtle

Among Brac University’s innumerous young talents, Noushin Jarin Tabassum (Sophomore, ESS) discovered a way to transform her passion into a profession and display to the world everything that she has to offer. The idleness of last year’s very first lockdown has pushed people in different directions, and luckily for Noushin this entailed falling in love with making art. Her competence in her hobby was so evident to the people in her life, that with the encouragement and insistence of their words, she came to open the Facebook page- “Peachy Turtle”. While the starting of her journey from an artist to a business may seem quick and smooth, Noushin refuses to take the easy ride for granted. She invests hours practicing every day to uphold and improve the quality of her products- resin works, customised paintings, and merchandise with prints of her artworks. The convenience of monetising one’s hobby is that the labour that goes into it does not feel like a chore, rather a medium of stress relief and Noushin can attest to that.
Upon being asked about the challenges she faced so far while running this business, she mentioned the common occurrence of copyright violation in our immediate society before anything else. Noushin experienced immense disappointment at her pieces sometimes going uncredited, or even outright stolen. Besides that, she was also a victim of all the inconveniences this pandemic has brought to small business owners such as delayed arrival of supplies, and hence, delayed dispatch of her products.
Noushin may be running Peachy Turtle as a one-stop page for people with an appreciation for artistic endeavours for now but her plans for the future hardly accommodate any commercial fervour. She said, “I am looking forward to creating a community for artists who are underappreciated and underprivileged. I want to experiment with multiple art styles and I want to share my knowledge with aspiring artists through my very own art studio. I want to help people realise that it is never too late to start something new.”
