1. What makes you in the mood to create?
Creating is almost like breathing. It’s just a vital part of me, but I am the type of artist who creates in a state of love - that means, I’m not Everything inspires me, it all really depends on my mood. Different ideas come to me in very different situations. It can even be difficult to focus because I have so many different influences and inspirations, so I feel compelled to follow various ideas and create multiple pieces at a time.
2. Who or what influences your work?
Daily situations, my surroundings, and the environment; nature is a really big inspiration for me. I try not to take too much inspiration from other artists, because I want my work to remain unique to me, and my personal experiences.
I want to allow each viewer to decide what my art means, rather than spoon-feeding any certain narrative.
3. What would you like to say with your art?
This is very difficult to answer; I don’t even know if I have just one answer. I find it difficult to talk about or describe my art, because I consider myself a visual communicator, as opposed to a verbal one-- but, in any case, my art can mean numerous things to every different person, and I want to allow each viewer to decide what my art means, rather than spoon-feeding any certain narrative.
4. What parts of yourself are represented with your art?
My inner thoughts, but also the mundanity of my everyday life. Much of my art, especially recent drawings, are grounded in my own daily routines-- for example, relaxing in the bath, wine in hand.
5. What do you hope to inspire in others?
When I create my arts I don’t have the intention to inspire people, but to show my point of view. That said, I always loved fashion because people could afford my art, and walk around in it. I hope that my art brings beauty to the average person’s everyday life, whether that be a garment, a print on their walls, or even an original piece.
6. What does your process look and feel like?
My process is very random and for every piece it’s different. Sometimes I start from the end (the final product I have pictured for a certain idea) to find the beginning. With this, I enjoy the freedom to change the focus of a piece in the middle of its creation. And so, my creative process is a bit chaotic, but somehow it is very relaxing for me.
