What makes you passionate about art?
I am passionate about art because it is a great way to express and find yourself. It is so rewarding to see an idea in your head come to life on paper.
How can art bring together a community?
Art brings together communities because you can see the area through someone else’s eyes. The more people there are creating and showing their art, the more perspectives are seen and understood. Art is an amazing way to bring together a community.
How long have you been creating art for?
I started pursuing art more seriously in high school, which lead me to study Design at MacEwan for four years.
