What lead you to become an artist?

 

“I always enjoyed creating art as a child, ask anyone, I made art out of anything that landed in my hands, but for years I always considered art a hobby. For years I thought I was going to be a Veterinarian. It wasn’t until Junior year of High School when I really began thinking about what I truly wanted to do with my life and my lust for being a Vet had greatly diminished. Leaving me room to really think about what it was I was passionate about, then I looked around years of art and how I evolved artistically. One could say I had an epiphany and I realized art is what I was meant to pursue.”
