So what got you into art in the first place?
I’ve always done art and dabbled in everything. I’ve always been into traditional tattoos, as you can see, that reflects in the paintings. I started doing hand stuff just for fun around last year. I really progressed and it’s been really nice to just focus and– practice, practice, practice just to see how far I could go. Even with just the hands, I thought that was my style, but I’m still looking to challenge myself and try new things.
Are you in school for art?
No, I was, but about last month I switched it to global studies. I’ve always wanted to something with charity events and art shows. I wanted to start something called “The Art of Giving Back” where artists participate and have it help build their art communities. I really want to open a coffee shop where kids could do art and moms could connect with each other. I’d love to have a space where kids could experiment with different mediums, painting, clay, and so on.
