3. How did you know you wanted to be an artist? My mother did watercolor and embroidery. I’ve always loved making things ever since I was a kid. I couldn’t picture myself doing anything else.
4. How would you describe your personal style? Colorful, lots of pattern, love the 80’s. 70’s clothing for children is also really inspiring.
5. How does this affect your work? I love pattern and color form the 70’s and 90’s - so those themes and icons play a roll in my work for sure. I also love animals, nature and collect folk art. That influences my work as well.
6. Describe your most memorable moment as an artist so far? I've had the chance to work on some amazing projects and I feel fortunate about that. But my most memorable moments are those random days in the studio when I surprise myself and create something new and unexpected. When I make something I'm really excited about it's so energizing. It's why I do what I do. I'm always searching for that feeling.
7. What has been your biggest struggle as an artist so far? Work life balance!
8. What were your thoughts when PC reached out to collaborate on this print? I was very excited!
9. Have you ever seen your prints on clothing before? Yes. I love designing patterns for apparel and would love to do more in the future.
10. Any sneak peeks or hints on any upcoming works? I'm over the moon about the folk pattern with Pink Chicken of course, and I'm also excited about an ASL puzzle that just came out with Mudpuppy.
