When did you realize you were an artist and did you have formal training?
I’ve always been creative. I started drawing as a child. I picked up a paint brush in college. I never studied art. I never thought of it as a career until later in life.
What inspires you to keep going? Leaving a legacy inspires me to keep going. I want to create a brand that will live longer than myself and inspire others. So many people inspire me.
Which piece of work is your favorite?
I did a portrait of Kanye West a few years back. It’s one of the most detailed pieces I’ve done.
Who is your favorite artist?
One of my favorites is Brionya James. Her work ethic and talent are top notch.
Do you face any adversity while trying to live out your dream? Trying to balance a 9-5, fitness goals, a social life and my art is difficult. I’m always tired.
What do you want your legacy as an artist to be?
I want people to be able to see passion and my love for art in my work. I want people to feel inspired and empowered to follow their dreams.
