When did you begin creating art? Why?
I began creating art in high school. I took the basic art class and got interested in it.
It was a long progression from there through art school and to where I am today.
What is the most challenging thing about being an artist and how do you face it?
Finding a way to make money doing what I want to do is probably the hardest part of being an artist.
I`ve bent my interests in a lot of ways to create work that will also make me a living.
I`m still working on finding the right balance.
What kind of tips and tricks can you give to new artists?
Tips and tricks depend quite a bit on the kind of art someone wants to make.
The best tip is that there are no tricks that will make someone a great artist.
