step 1: base color

step 2: peacock!

step 3: prep feathers

step 4: painted feathers

q&a

21 Feb

what made you want to become an artist??

for me, it wasn’t so much wanting to ‘become’ an artist as it was being ‘born’ an artist. when i was little i would always color with my giant box of crayons. [i thought it was genius when they came out with the sharpener in the back of the box]. i painted clothing on my barbies and created my own ‘wallpaper’ in my room. i started painting pictures of mermaids before i knew how to write my name. [i loved the little mermaid].

where do you find your inspiration??

my eyes are drawn to all kinds of things. i think it’s all about how you look at things too. i think it was programmed into me at birth to look at things differently. experimenting is huge too. messing with different color pallets and objects to paint sparks ideas for other pieces. i was opening a bottle of paint awhile back and couldn’t take the seal off with my hands. i tried to rip the seal off with my teeth and got some paint on my lip…inspiration piece…close up of lips with paint dripping off them. symbolizes how painting ‘quenches’ whatever need i have at the time. [this piece is a work in progress]

how would you like people to describe your art?

i want people to look at my art and enjoy it. i don’t want someone to look at my art and feel confused or feel that it’s ‘complex’ and not understand it. i like to bring a different light to the objects i paint. i paint things people know. it just depends what ‘light’ you’re viewing them in. the thing with art, though, is that it can be interpreted in so many different ways. it won’t work if i tell you how i want you to see my art. ask 10 different people to describe my art and you’ll get 10 different descriptions. my hope is for my audience to enjoy my art and walk away remembering it.

what are your 5 most significant accomplishments in your life so far?

1) graduating high school with honors

2) travelling europe and south america

3) falling hard, and picking myself up again

4) finding painting again

5) being a good person and meeting some pretty amazing people in my life

on my nightstand you’ll find…

iHome, candle, fresh flowers, nail polish, piggy bank, pens, perfume, lamp, bamboo, water, watch, rosary

the fictional character i’m most like is…

some responses i got from some friends of mine: jasmine [aladdin], betty boop, sleeping beauty, wonder woman, dorothy [wizard of oz], and an hour glass??

these questions were derived from my ARA 394 class and [partially] done as an assignment.
