How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
I’ve been doing photo editing for a little over a year now! I consider my specialty to be dreamscapes and photo manipulation. My inspiration mainly comes from dreams, and memories. From 2013 – 2016, I couldn’t dream at all. When the dreams started back up again, I wanted to find a way to document them. Instead of writing them down in a notebook, I decided to learn how to edit so that I can bring them to life.

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?
Right now, I’m doing freelance work but no set job in the industry at the moment. I would love to get my art onto graphic shirts, and items that are sold in a lot of major stores. I would also love to design for Netflix, and movie posters!

My favorite artist at the moment would have to be @VisualsofJulis

What is one accomplishment you’ve had in your life? Does not need to be art related.
I’m actually a well established choreographer. I led my crew to an championship win on MTVs Americas Best Dance crew.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
Hopefully in the future, I will be able to open my own design and production company.

If you could meet and talk to any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
If I could speak to anyone, dead or alive, it would be Michael Jackson!

How is one way you make money with your art?
I often make money doing Album art for people, and selling poster sized prints of my work.

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
If I could go anywhere, it would have to be Bali or Faroe Islands. Every time I see shots from there, it just blows my mind.

What is your favorite brand of art supply? Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software
Favorite supplies would definitely have to be my Nikon and Photoshop. Although I’m shooting on an outdated Nikon D90, I always believe that if you have an imagination, your equipment doesn’t matter as much.
