I work on my art on a very part time basis. I hope for the day that I will be able to work on it full time. I'm a self taught artist.
What was a defining moment for you with your art?
My defining moment is when I had an opportunity to meet an artist that I had followed and always wanted to meet. I got an invite to the art gallery and was very excited to meet her and maybe get to talk to her. Well at this showing I was able to get up close to her and ask questions, she made me feel like I could do this to. All I had to do was believe in my self.
Where do you draw inspiration?
I draw my inspiration from many things other artist, outdoors, colors and just getting my hands on the paint or mediums.
