How would you describe your artistic style?
To describe my artistic style…well, I never stick to one thing for too long. I like to try a little bit of everything when it comes to art. I like to think of myself as a “free bird” in the art world.
What influences you to incorporate buttons in your pieces?
I always like to add different things into my paintings for texture…odds and ends I may have or pieces of old jewelry. The buttons just happen to be incorporated into two different pieces I donated for the event two different times.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
Wow…super power! I loved super girl when I was a child, she was my hero. I would love to be able to fly….I envy creatures with wings because they can move so freely when they want.
At what point did you first consider yourself a true artist?
When I first started doodling….that’s when I considered myself an artist. My favorite artist is Picasso and I quote “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up”.
When did you first get involved with Artopia, and why?
I believe 2014 was the first year I got involved because a friend of mine told me about it. I love being able to spread my love of art while helping the community! Anytime I can lend a helping hand, no matter the situation…I am more than happy to do so.
