Why do you make art?
I make art because I am a painter who is on a journey lol, I don’t know. I think I have to make it. I can’t see a world where I give up on this burning inside
What changes can art make to life?
Art if practiced and taken seriously can provide a safe, quiet and unique space to “be” and to work through thoughts, ideas, issues, or problems of the mind.
How would you characterize the time we live in?
I think that we are in a renaissance period. At least here in NYC the amount of good work being made is great; And it feels like only just the beginning.
It’s an exciting time with the internet too because artists don’t just have an audience but also ability to connect with other artists worldwide for support,
critique, friendship, etc. This has already been going on for years via Instagram – so artists are unified!
We have a network we can lean on each other get through things or accomplish goals and we all grow together. It’s cool.
A lot of uncertainty and stuff right now sure, but that can be exciting too!
