How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
I’ve been artistic for as long as I can rembember: making things and painting simple things. I usually paint my living spaces in funky colors and designs. Its only recently I’ve considered myself an artist though. My specialty is fluid art/acrylics. I’m totally in love with it! My inspiration comes from the colors themselves and music. Music has always been a huge part of me.

Do you have a job in the art industry? If So, what’s one thing you don’t like about it? If no, where would your dream job be?
I do not. My dream job would be owning my own design store fully stocked with original art, refurbished furniture, and other funky finds.

Do you have a favorite Artist?
There are sooo many talented humans in the world; I can’t pick just one.

What is one accomplishment you’ve had in your life? Does not need to be art related.
*Just doing an everyday tasks is an accomplishment when you live with anxiety/depression*✌ Me putting my work out into the world is an accomplishment for me.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
I see myself living the dream. Art is the only thing that has made sense in my mind, so I gotta make it happen, cap’n.😄

If you could meet and talk to any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
It would be my mom. I lost her unexpectedly almost 2 years ago. Painting has kind of helped me cope with that.

How is one way you make money with your art?
I sell my art through my Instagram, but I will soon start selling through my Etsy as well, FunkyFluidOriginals *

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
Anywhere! I haven’t had the chance to travel much, but I want to see it all. I’ll go broad and say Europe. I want to see all the sights, museums, architecture and experience the culture. The world is a big beautiful place; there is so much to see.

What is your favorite brand of art supply? Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software
I love Liquetex for pouring. Modge Podge has been my go to for all crafting needs.

Any advice for young artists?
Try new things: it is essential for growth. Don’t be scared to put yourself out there. Show the world what you can do!
