Who is your muse?

"I am my own muse. My artwork is a reflection of myself and it wasn’t until last year I realized that. Whether it’s a deep emotion, random thoughts running through my mind, or my own experiences, I subconsciously show it in my artwork."

What is the biggest challenge of being an artist?

"As an artist, there are many big challenges that I have faced. From knowing my worth, to wanting to constantly produce my best work (perfectionism mindset), imposter syndrome, to not receiving the recognition/credit I deserve for my craft; there are just so many big challenges that I have faced on my journey. I guess the answer to this question will be different for every artist based on their own experiences."
