“Since as little as I could remember I would go to art camp every summer with my little sister, and during the school year, I would go to an art class at night once a week. Art has always been a part of my life for the past 21 years in some capacity. I first began as a doodler, then took a college class on figure drawing, but moved away from that within the past year. I started creating representational scenes, but that didn’t work out. Then I found a new passion in abstract art. Recently, I’ve been focusing on smaller paintings that are more representational and more abstract in terms of color and shape."
“My work is inspired by real-life situations. I like to depict moments of time in my work. Right now, I am thinking about objects because I have been stuck in my house for a long time. There’s a chair in my current childhood home that I’ve never really thought about. Now that I see it more, I think about the story behind the chair, and objects have just become more valuable to me. Because of this, I have to get something out of my brain and onto a canvas.
Studio time is crucial. The most important thing to remember is to be in the studio more, and keep making art all of the time. My advice for artists would be, if whatever you are working on feels like a chore, you’re doing something wrong. If you’re making the work you’re supposed to be making, it will be exciting for you. You begin to look forward to making something you love.
