Since I never answered these...

1. How did you get your start in art?
As a child, crayoning everything...
Seriously, I can't remember a time where art wasn't a part of my life...

2. Where do you draw your inspiration from?
My personal experience! Friends and family, history, random thoughts, my clients (I'm an art therapy student)....
Famous artists I am inspired by: Frida Kahlo, Georgia OKeefe, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Romare Bearden, Wangechi Mutu...

3. What artists/styles/movements have influenced you the most?
The Surrealists! Some artists are listed above...

4. Do you believe that true originality in art is possible in contemporary art?
Definitely! We do not all think the same way, and therefore do not create from the same place within ourselves, even when painting about similar topics...

5. What medium(s) do you work in and why?
Oil paint, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media, collage, linocut prints... I am still exploring...

6. What is your background/training in art?
I have a BA in art from a small liberal arts university in Pennsylvania.

7. What subject matter/style do you explore, and why?
My style uses surrealistic and figurative elements; I have recently begun to explore abstraction...

8. Have you had exhibits, or are you currently showing work?
I have had exhibits in the past, however, I am not currently showing anywhere...

9. How do you stay motivated?
Sometimes, I don't...
But seriously, I am still trying to answer that question...

10. Why do you create art?
I think I would cease to exist if I didn't...
