— When painting, what are some important elements to have around you?
I paint a lot at night, in silence. Sometimes with a glass of wine or multiple teas.
— Are there any reoccurring themes coming up lately in your conversations with friends?
I think really it’s dignity and self respect and knowing thyself. It’s a constant work in progress and we all strive to make sure it shows up in the work and how we live our lives - with the choices we make.
— What are you most interested in learning about this year?
I am just interested in a learning period. I really always pray for no distractions. I am a little selfish with my time. Because, I honestly feel like there’s not enough hours in a day. So I have to choose me first, especially with my work. If I’m not in the studio painting I really feel like something is missing.
