How long have you been into art?

"I have always been interested in art from when I was little really. I would watch Art Attack religiously and tried to find ‘everyday items’ around the house to make my own Art Attack. I still get excited when it is time to by new stationary. I’m like a kid in a candy shop!"

What do you do in your spare time? 

"I spend a lot of time drawin in my sketchbook, catching up on my programs and spending time with friends and family."

When are you completely satisfied with your work?

"I don’t think I can be completely satisfied with my work. I think work can always be altered, whether it is adding more or less to the project. However when I feel like my work is at a satisfactory level I post it on my blog."

What's the magic formula for success?

"GOALS: I would say setting a goal for your self would be the first part of success. You need to believe in your goal and your idea before considering anything else. PASSION: You need to be passionate on what you are doing; without this would it really be worth it? ACTION: Always keep moving forward towards your goals. Every little bit of effort you make can make a big difference to the future."

What is your dream project?

"I would someday love to own my own company and to own a gallery/café. This would be to exhibit up coming artists and to give them the chance that every passionate artist needs."

What role does the artist have in society?

"I believe an artist’s role in society is to visually create a feeling or to express emotion without using words or sound. I feel it is really up to the personality of the artists themselves. The different types of artists in the world can affect society depending on their own work."
