I’m able to release what I have inside, express what I have inside. I have all these ideas and imaginations running around in (my mind) and I’m able to execute them on canvas and paint. It’s like I can breathe when I’m done. I can have rainy days when I miss the rain or to imagine umbrellas or bubbles floating past, it does me good. I live in the kind of world that I want to be in. I get to be free when I paint.
I paint almost everyday. I like painting in the early morning hours when daylight is its strongest.
I’m never gonna grow up and I’m a happy person. My work helps me to see that people are good and they want to be happy.
I’m just a little girl from Orange Mound, still in the front yard waiting on my mama to come home from work.
I love visual challenges. Design comes with a new set of challenges. I’m constantly trying to best myself, which helps me grow and develop as an artist. I look forward to a time when I’m like my mom, and design is like a second skin to me. I’m getting there.
I design in some form every day. I start in the mornings, not at the crack of dawn, but in the mornings when my mind is its freshest. I have my coffee, of course. It just puts me at ease and when I’m at ease I do my best work.
I wouldn’t want to do anything else! Of course, that's not answering the question. Well, everyone always tells me I’d make a good teacher. But I fight that notion to the death!
That is a question I think about daily. I admire my mom and her sense of self as a creative person. But I’m still in the process of becoming an the artist I’ve always wanted to be. I’m on a journey.
