..Segment of a past revelation...
..The outcome is indefitite..and that`s ok..
-What inspired you to start being creative?When I was 2 years old I almost lost my life to spinal Meningitis. Even though it took much of my hearing, my mom says that it left me with a deep sense of awareness about the world. In growing up, I had to depend on body language and the unspoken words that people use to communicate. It was early on that I became inspired to be an artist....wanting to put my thoughts into images instead of words.
-Is making art your fulltime job, and if not, what else do you do?I am a full time artist and a full time stay at home mom.
-Have you gone to art school, if yes where did you go and what did you study?I completed most of my studies at Kendall College of Art and Design, but also studied in New York City at Parson's. My emphasis was fine art painting.
-Where do you find inspiration?I find most of my inspiration from the people around me, mostly my teenage daughter and her friends. I also am inspired by animals, children, and textiles.
culture? Ali Cavanaugh!
