- Where does your inspiration come from?
I don’t really have an inspiration for my art. I paint for myself. Art is my creative outlet. It keeps my mind at peace. I create what makes me happy.
- What is your favorite medium to use and why?
My favorite medium is oil paint. I have always liked painting, and I prefer oil over acrylic. Oil is much richer and thicker than acrylic; it also takes longer to dry which gives me more time to work on my pieces.
- What are your goals to grow as an artist or other future related aspirations?
My goals in art are to only create what makes me happy. When art becomes a chore or an obligation, it is no longer effective as a creative outlet and so I also hope to never overwork myself artistically. I want to improve my skills obviously, but more important is maintaining a healthy artistic balance and making sure I am happy while creating.
