I just wanted to say you're an amazing artist. I love your work and I can't wait to see what else you'll do
Thank you so so much. You’re a total sweetheart xox
Your work is really incredible, especially for an artist of your age! I'm curious, when you're inspired to create something do you find a particular image that draws you? Or what prompts your drawings that lead to the paintings? I know this may be a difficult question to answer but I often find myself struggling past a creative block
Thank you so much! When I create something I piece together lots of different references in my mind to create and image or together. Some or logged in my memory some I find online or in books I own. And honestly.. I almost never plan a painting with thumbnails or sketches. I launch straight into it. That used to drive my art teachers crazy. I really don’t like having to spend time planning anything in art, I just make it.
