When did you begin your art career?
Where did you get the inspiration for your art business?
LA: A couple of my artist friends saw some pencil drawings I did and suggested that I start painting. I told them that I didn’t know how to paint and I didn’t want to waste my money on equipment that I didn’t know how to use. The one artist friend told me where to get inexpensive equipment. He then asked me how did I know that you can’t paint unless you try.
What makes you want to be an artist?
NQ: Honestly knowing through visuals I could possibly reach someone you know, maybe plant a seed or give a lesson or a story the viewer can relate to.
For you how does what you do as an artist related to
LA: I would describe my style of art as freedom. As an artist I try to stand out and think outside the box. I feel that I have come a long way since I’ve started painting. I like a lot of different types of art and attempt to emulate a lot of different styles.
What is your favorite subject to paint?
LA: I like to paint people because I love the challenge of capturing their emotion on canvas.
What is it that inspires you to keep going as an entrepreneur?
LA: To be honest what keeps me inspired is the interest; the people and their reactions. That in itself keeps me going.
