In general, what does being an artist mean to you?
My heart is so huge… Art allows me to express myself without having to articulate, to release emotions and capture emotions in a painting is art to me. When someone purchases one of my paintings, it is sharing a part of my spirit. I get to paint what I see through my eyes and give animals a voice that they don't have. A connection… that means a lot to me.
What are some of the biggest challenges you face as an artist?
I only have one challenge. To be able to represent the subject with the love that they deserve. Whether that be a glimmer in their eye or an expression on their face, to be able to give it the justice and worthiness it deserves. That's my challenge.
