What is your art based upon, such as medium? Mostly digital art, but also shrink plastic and stickers.

What was your inspiration to get started? I have always loved to draw and create things, but in the mid-2000’s I started getting into digital scrapbooking and art, and it just kind of went from there. Shrink plastic and stickers are somewhat new to me, but I really like being able to put my drawings into tangible form.

What do you love about being an artist? The freedom! Being able to create what I love is the best thing in the world.

What are some challenges of being an artist? I struggle a little with time management sometimes, and the business side is not nearly as fun as the creative side of things.

Advice for aspiring artists? Don’t compare yourself to anyone else! That, and practice every day.

What other artists do you love? Oh, there are so many! But right now I’ve been kind of obsessed with woodworks by George Nakashima. I know nothing about woodworking, which is probably why I find it so fascinating. Haha!
