What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?

 

I was an actress and I hated everything being focused on what I looked like and how others saw me. When I discovered art I saw I could make something that speaks to people and no one cares wtf I look like. I can create anything I want. I love that complete creative feeling. Plus I have a pathological need to get the pictures out of my head.

Steve Alba, Jason Lee, Stacy Peralta, Tony Hawk. Any ties to skateboarding? I started skating as a teen. I loved it, the boys, the boards, the tricks.
