How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
I try not to focus on one type of art. I feel like I could create almost anything out of anything. If I can paint it, glue it, sculpt it, mold it etc. I can make something cool. So you can say I find inspiration from simply creating something out of nothing.

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 would love to make an honest living by being creative. I guess I haven’t quite figured that part out. My dream job would be Comic book artist.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
I can’t say where I see myself in 5 or 10 years down the line. I take life as it comes and I try and make the best out what comes my way.

If you could meet and talk to any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
If I could meet and talk to anyone person in the world it would be Todd Mcfarlane (also my favorite artist) I’m not sure what I would ask him but I think it would be fun to hang out with the guy.

How is one way you make money with your art?
I sell my art to friends and anyone who ask me to make something for them.
