THE ARTIST BEHIND THE ART
How old are you and where do you live?
I'm 29 years old and live with my two fur cuties Bourbon and Bentley in Dallas, Texas.
How did you become an artist?
My grandparents live in Spain and I spent a lot of time with them growing up. When my grandmother joined a painting class with some other ladies, I decided one day I wanted to go along. The teacher did not like me just sitting around so he gave me a photo, a piece of paper and some charcoal. I must say I had never worked with charcoal before and even I was surprised by the result. I changed schools a month later to study Applied Art throughout High-school. I kept working on portrait paintings and found that it is an interesting way to express myself. My grandmother is still my biggest inspiration.
How did you end up creating Mixed Media Art?
I'm a self taught mixed media artist with which I started about a year ago and I love how no piece is ever the same. It's an interesting search for the right combinations and techniques.
The reason why I started with Mixed Media Art is because I wanted to provide art to a broader audience.
Are you a full-time artist?
I'm an interior architect in my primary profession and I love combining my creative and design skills. Owning my own art studio as an entrepreneur is a very interesting and educational experience. I also study and Executive MBA in Operation Effectiveness which is definitely convenient when running your own business.
Your favorite painting outfit?
I go to work dressed business (-casual) and in my favorite high-heels. I actually don't change outfits when I come home.
I love painting all dressed up. It makes me feel confident and good in my skin. All I do is put my hair up so it doesn't get into my paint pallet.
