What is your favorite medium?
My favorite medium probably has to be acrylic…and makeup. I but if I had to classify myself I am would say that I am a mixed media artist. I love the versatility of different items and how it adds interesting texture and visual effect to a piece.
What is your most memorable ART experience?
When I was in 4th grade I illustrated a report I did on Egypt. I got a very positive response when I presented it. It was the first I can remember someone other than my family commenting on my work.
Who or what inspires you?
Fearless beings inspire me. Get rid of fear and pretty much anything is possible.
What is your favorite quote?
Fave quote at the moment: “Go home, Cosmopolitan, you’re drunk.” Referring to their cover they did on the Kardashians as well as some other ridiculous headlines. Its good to call out the tom-foolery when you see it!
Where would you go with a canvas in a paintbrush?
Spain! I’ve always wanted to go there and for some reason I feel like I could retire there even though I’ve never been.
