When did your interest in art/creating begin?

I’ve always been interested in some form of art. I spent a good amount of my life in the theatre. My interest in visual art began in middle school, but didn’t really come into fruition until 2010 or 2011.

Who/what influences your work?

I think everything in my small universe influences my work, but I really love Dada.

What do you hope the viewer gets from your work?

I don’t really look too far past the completion stage. Once a painting is done, I no longer consider it mine.

What do you think about the term outsider art? Is there a term that you think works better?

I think it’s fine. I don’t generally like labels but I understand their purpose.
