Description

Nyla opted for non-fungible tokens as conventional art platforms had many barriers to entry.

Nyla Hayes, a young artist of just 12 years old, has become a millionaire in just a few months by selling her works in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the online marketplace for NFT OpenSea.

As Nyla details on her website, she has been drawing since she was four years old. Later, at age nine, she began creating what she calls Long Neckies, drawn portraits of women of various backgrounds who have long, narrow necks.

One of the girl's main inspirations was dinosaurs, creatures that have fascinated her for as long as she can remember.

"My favorite dinosaur was the Brontosaurus, and at the time I was really into dinosaurs," Hayes told Buisness Insider. "So I wanted to add it to my Long Neckies."

Nyla believes that the Brontosaurus's long and thick neck represents something powerful and strong, and that is exactly the image she has of women.

"That is basically what I want to show with my works, how beautiful, strong and powerful women can be. And no matter their culture or origin, all women are beautiful," said the young artist.

An escalation to success

The story of his triumph in the digital world began when his uncle told him about NFTs and suggested that he study them, as mainstream art platforms had many barriers to entry.

Nyla started drawing on a smartphone and then switched to an iPad to gain access to a larger canvas. She saved the images as JPEG files and uploaded them to OpenSea.
