Describe your work in three words…
Kinda, really, colorful... Sunny and sweet, yeah? Let’s say dulcet, efflorescence, and halcyon.
What first made you realise you wanted to pursue a creative career?
I’ve always been intrinsically motivated with a strong gravitation towards creative work environments. A natural consciousness to follow the creative road and creativeness, plus insatiable curiosity, have always been defining characteristics of my personality. As a creative, you land in the complex and paradoxical and tend to avoid habit or the routine zone. I worked as a staff accountant, and years later as an underwriter in the mortgage world, but managed to always remain creative behind my desk, teaching painting classes and having art shows in my flex time. I was simply hard-wired to create. Eventually, the full-on creative career found me. I do enjoy organisation, logic, numbers, and balance but I have a bigger flair for making a whole shebang from nothing. I like to stay true to myself without any compromise. Living a creative life was and is still a big necessity, and I’m forever in gratitude that a career organically bloomed from it. Watering the seeds, always.
