Q: The moment you fell in love with your craft?
There was no specific moment where I fell in love with my craft, I have always loved any time when I was able to be creative and create art. I think I’ve always known that my heart was made for art and creative things!
Q: Did you go to school for your craft?
My craft is just something I have developed, worked on, and taught myself over the years! I think that’s truly the best way to learn is through experience and practice. I went to school for a B.A. in Psychology, but don’t think I’ll be using that anytime soon!
Q. What is your art style/vibe/mood?
I think the mood that comes through in my work is one that just makes you feel good and hopefully puts you in a good mood. I love using bright and light colors to really lighten up a space. I love all white rooms and walls because I feel like they are the perfect blank canvas for a piece of colorful art.
Q: A goal you would like to achieve in your career?
Travel and art are my two passions, so something that involves both would be a dream! My goal is to be able support myself through my business and also be able to give back in some way.
Q: Why art?
Art is something that no matter where my life takes me, it always brings me back to art. Art allows me to speak in ways that I can’t always express with words, and something that can bring about feelings that words sometimes can’t.
Q: Favorite quote/saying?
“Be” - it can mean so many things and can apply to so many situations no matter what you’re going through (good and bad). I’m all about living in the moment, and tell myself this all the time!
Q: What advice would you give to other artists?
Don’t get frustrated with your work, and always be on the look for inspiration that can fuel your craft; there’s endless possibilities with art. If you’re passionate about something, pursue it.
Q: Is there a particular setting/place you like to create art?
For some reason, if I’m around palm trees I feel more creative. I can’t explain it, but the more tropical place I am, the more I’m able to grab inspiration! I also have to be working in a bright, white setting in order for my best ideas to come to life!
Q: Where do you pull your inspiration from?
I feel like a broken record, but really anything tropical or beachy instantly puts me in this mood, and that’s where a lot of my inspiration comes from - whether it’s directly the ocean and palms or just the bright colors that my soul feels when I’m in a tropical place!
Q: How do you overcome creative blocks?
Music is my savior! I’m always always listening to music; it instantly boosts my mood and can break me out of a creative block or slump any day of the week.
Q: What inspired your DB Summer ArtWear?
Thanks to my sister, her beautiful daughter (my niece Sloane) inspired my current collection. She is the cutest, brightest, most beautiful little angel; she’s so full of energy and life and such a joy to be around. All of the bright and airy colors were inspired by her!
Q: What type of message is behind your DB Summer ArtWear?
I just wanted to create pieces that really make people smile and feel good! I think this collection is all about happiness and youthfulness; summer is a time that can make anyone feel youthful and joyful, so I wanted my pieces to convey that also!
