Culture? introducing Vero Navarro..

..Today I have the great pleasure to introduce you all to the fabulous Vero Navarro. Vero`s work is very well made, she has a great sense of facial features and combines the naturalistic and the dreamy to one wonderful expression. Vero is telling us about herself and her thoughts around her art today, so sit back and enjoy..
..Here it is, your shot of art with Vero Navarro:

-Can you tell the readers a little bit about yourself, name, what country you live in, age etc?
My name is Vero Navarro, 27, illustrator and web creative living in Madrid , Spain.

-What inspired you to start being creative?
I never know how to answer this question. Maybe it is because I don't really trust in such a thing as "inspiration". I just draw, because it is what I've been doing since I was eight. I like it, I feel good doing it. Being creative is my hobby, my therapy, my job, maybe my vice... I dont need a special motivation to start drawing. It is like eating or walking.

-Is making art your full time job, and if not, what else do you do?
For a long time, my goal was to become a full time illustrator, but that just was't possible in the actual situation that Spain was (and is still) going through. So I had to find another way to earn a living. For the moment I work as a web designer/creative in Madrid. But the good thing is that it is really a good job and even better, I often have the chance to make illustrations for the advertising campaigns we are working on, so I suppose that it is a good second prize.
Sometimes I accept comissions, take part in art shows or collaborate with magazines and other artists, but what I really enjoy doing is making stuff on my own, so the most of the pieces I do are just for fun. And that is allways great. Money and fame aren't relly that important.

-Have you gone to art school, if yes where did you go and what did you study?
I have a degree in Fine Arts, that I obtained in the Faculty of San Carlos in Valencia, Spain. And so a few more graphic and web design courses where I learned Illustrator, Photoshop and some other design programs that made my life much more easy. No more brush cleaning!

-Where do you find inspiration?
Maybe I should skip this one, because I think it is answered in the second question....

-Do you have a favorite artist and if so who and why?
I dont have one favourite, I have dozens of them.
just to mention some contemporary ones: Adam Hughes, Eric Fortune, Evan B Harris, Tran Nguyen, Annie Wu, Aaron Jasinski... And if I think in the big fat classics: Rockwell, Waterhouse, Bougereau, Mucha, Klimt...

-Where can my readers see you`re work?
In my blog: www.poorsailor.blogspot.com I keep always it updated with my latets works.
And If someone needs a more more organizated environment,They can just take a look at my behance profile or my flickr.
