What inspires you? What inspired this piece/idea? In the age of the internet, there is never a shortage of things that inspire me. The internet has given many amazing artists a platform to display their work and show it to the world. I am mostly inspired by the possibilities that creatives of our time are fortunate enough to take advantage of. The world truly is at our fingertips, and if used correctly, we have the ability to inspire and change the world in ways previous generations of creatives only could have imagined. This piece was inspired by my children and their imaginations. I just imagined being 10 years old again and being told I was heading back to school in the middle of a pandemic and I had to wear a mask. This is how I imagine a school day would look through the mind of a 10-year-old who has no choice but to trust the adults.
How did you start making art/Why do you make art? My first memory of art was in the third grade when my small school got a new art teacher. He showed me that art was more than just coloring books and that what you created was just as important as how you created. What keeps me creating is all the untold stories out there just waiting to be told through images.
