Where were you born? Year, Country, State. Where do you live currently?


Born, and still living in Madison, Wisconsin since July 13th, 1993. 



What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?


Hard to say. I have drawing for as long as I can remember. I know I was always crafty, but he earliest memory I can remember is doodling on all my papers in class at the beginning of elementary school and that continued until graduation. I still draw/doodle on any paper i am given, and well I was too busy drawing in school to be a good student. Luckily, that worked out really well for me as an Artist.



Who is your favorite skateboarder, living or dead? Any ties to skateboarding?


Rob Dyrdek because he's crazy and ridiculous. The good kind of course.




Who is your favorite artist, living or dead?


I have too many to pick one favorite. I am always finding more Artists that I favorite at that time, but it's always changing.


When you're not creating amazing works of art, what do you enjoy doing?


I work with and sell body Jewelry which I Learning about psychology and art, and how they connect. And then more Art. Haha


 Who are your biggest influences? 


Banksy. Jackson Pollock. Everyone who is in my life, and the random strangers I meet that support my Art. :)



What mediums do you enjoy working in?


Pen and Ink is my favorite. The skinniest possible Micron& Copic pens are used on almost everything I draw because they are great for small detail. I have been using more color lately, so I really love using Prismacolor Markers with the paint brush tips on clay-board for a paint-like effect or on canvas with paint pens.



Anything else you want to tell?


Thanks for letting me be apart of this amazing opportunity. I have had so much fun and I can't wait to do more!
