Describe your creative process.
My creative process in organized chaos with a dash of intense, creative episodes. I can work at any time of the day, but I find my best work comes late at night when there are fewer distractions. Every piece starts with love and positivity. I enjoy collaborating with clients to make their ideas come to life, especially at events where I ask people for a word or phrase that I incorporate into my work. My senes are always open and I try to live in the present, to appreciate all of life's beauty.
What influences your work? What inspires you?
I'm greatly inspired by inclusion, positivity, and language. I love to study the history of successful artists to learn from their achievements and failures. I am my happiest when I'm creating and I love to work on ideas that make other people think.
What is good art? What makes a piece of art great?
Good Art is Smart Art, which makes people think. I like to hide words and ideas into my works that make viewers search for meaning. I find this allows for a greater conversation and a more intimate relationship with the art.
What is the role of the artist today?
The role of an artist is to inspire others. As artists, it is our duty to listen to our hearts and create at will. We must show the world how our senses interact with our environment while giving meaning and respect to all of life's creations.
