How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
Well, I think 10 years or more. It’s hard to tell, to be honest. I was interested in arts on and off since my teens and later it occupied more and more my time and me. Now I am full time photographer and graphics designer. I get inspiration out of sudden. It’s like I sit, sipping my 5th cup of coffee, reading a book, and then BAM – the idea crashes into the brain 🙂
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 am freelancer, fully living from the art 🙂 Mostly I don’t like clients giving photos that are very small, like 30 KB and demanding high resolution artworks from them. And of course, they refuse to understand, why it’s impossible, doesn’t matter how hard I am trying to explain. Luckily, most of my clients are wise people.
Do you have a favorite Artist?
Yes. Couple of them. Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte, Frida Kahlo, Jan Saudek. The list is long 🙂
What is one accomplishment you’ve had in your life? Does not need to be art related.
Lived and worked in Alaska for couple of months. It was the country of my dreams, I wished to visit Alaska since I was a kid. And I fulfilled this dream.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
With my husband, doing my art. More tattooed and even more crazy than I am now 🙂 But actually nobody knows, because I experienced that whole life can completely change overnight.
If you could meet and talk to any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
Does it have to be real person? Because I wanted to write “Severus Snape”. In other case it would be Till Lindemann. From Rammstein.
How is one way you make money with your art?
I am devoted for art to the core and always trying to achieve the best. This brings me clients and clients brings money.
If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
New Zealand. Because it’s unique.
What is your favorite brand of art supply? Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software
Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software. Canon. And Adobe.
Any advice for young artists?
Be yourself. Do what you like.
