How would you describe your work to someone you just met?
I would describe my work as my outlet as a whole. I haven’t really found a consistent style yet, and I find that I am happiest when I create what I want when I want. I thoroughly enjoy realism, but I am working on breaking the constricting expectations I set for myself.
Do you have a certain routine that you follow when creating?
When creating I try to set the space the way I need it. If I really need to focus I don’t watch TV shows like I usually do, and I listen to music. I find that having everything I need where I need it makes me more motivated to get to work. When I’ve finished a piece of art, I like to share it with others to reward myself.
Who or what are your biggest influences?
My biggest influences are artists that create intellectual and thought-provoking work. Aesthetic is only one aspect of art and I love being able to think about what I view.
What boundaries are you currently trying to break for yourself in relations to art?
As mentioned earlier, I am trying to get into other styles and mediums to become more versatile. I can still grow skill in my favorite areas, but I would like to have skill in others as well.
Do you have any projects that you are excited about?
I am in the works of planning a series based on the black experience. I have been struggling with planning and making things cohesive, but I am excited for it.
