What ideas / questions / reflections / challenges might be arising as you work with your theme (theme) – How are you working with the meaning of your word? Where are you drawing inspiration from?

Messy very much describes my process, because I move fast and paint for extended periods of time; so by the end of a week or 10 days my studio is quite a mess!

How were you introduced to art? Was it someone, a class, a culture, family, friends, etc.?

ArtVan founder and good friend Jamie and I connected over art in the 4th grade. Prior to that I spent all my time doodling and drawing and making-paint-by-numbers.

What role does art play in your life today? How has art made you feel these past few months / year / during the pandemic?

Today, I’m a professional artist with a full time dedicated studio in Rockland Maine. The pandemic has allowed a new opportunity to focus on creating a new body of work.
