How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
I have been creating art since 2011. I specialize in Psychedelic Art. My inspiration comes from the fact that I am able to create anything in the first place. The process of being able to turn an intangible thought, into a tangible product, is something that fascinates 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 have a job in the industry. My dream job would be owning a art business of some sort . Something that would make me enough money to support my own creative projects, as well as being able to employ other artists , and support their creative endeavors.

Do you have a favorite Artist?
My favorite artist is a person who has inspired me , and who’s work has motivated me to create the style of artwork that I make . His name is Florian “ Acid “ Usseglio. He goes by “ Acid Flo Art “. His artwork is just insane ! It is awe- inspiring when you see it, it embodies everything that the term Psychedelic Art is.

What is one accomplishment you’ve had in your life? Does not need to be art related.
One accomplishment I have had would be, continually working on myself, being a better person than who I was yesterday. Learning to be Appreciative, and Grateful for everyone, and everything in my life.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
Alive, and Happy

Any advice for young artists?
Practice, Practice, Practice! Never stop learning, always seek to improve your work. Create art that you love, do what makes you happy, and not what you think what other people want to see. Inspire, and support others in their creative endeavors.
