Why did your star t wor king on your cr aft? What motivated
you?:Growing up I had a couple family member s who were
ar tistic. I wasn?t ver y skilled as a child but I like to dr aw and
color and I hoped to be able to be on their level as I got older.
Funny stor y when I would go with my Aunt to her job I would
dr aw car toons for her coworker s and it?s cr azy to go there
and still see my dr awings from when I was a child.
In 2019, I decided to take my ar t ser iously. I realized that my
tr ue passion was to create. Whether it was digitally or on
paper or through fashion. I had a thought of maybe my
ar twork can take me places that my bachelor s degree can?t.
What motivates me to create ar t is from exper iences,
emotions and wanting to br ing beauty or tell a stor y when
there is no words to express.
What is the best way that you know how to cope with
anxiety?:The best way to cope with anxiety for me is to listen
to instr umentals Or calm music and be outside. Being in
tune with nature is when I feel most free. Whether I?m
listening to calm music or listening to nature, it calms my
ner ves. When I was old enough to dr ive I would always tr y to
go to the beach when I needed to get away or just have a
peace of mind. Being outside in nature makes me happy
because not only is it calming, but it helps with my anxiety
and inspires me to think of new ideas for ar twork.
