Sure I can. However, what makes me feel good is drawing my own art, but I’d like to do it more. I’m not a huge reader.
Can you draw from the ground up, rather than copying from the air?
I’d love to. I could use a book or a photograph to learn something. It takes time to learn how to draw, but I’d love to learn more. When I do, I’ll share the work with my parents.
How much time do you put into photography?
My parents love my photography so they’ll take good care of me. I love to draw and paint as well but it is hard for me to spend that much time just one activity. I’d like to be able to practice more things.
How did you learn?
I was learning photography at age 3 and I was drawing at age 8. My parents are amazing teachers.
Do you draw more art today than you did as a child?
Not at all. I’ve only done one piece of full length work by hand. It’s a poster painting which will be published in the Spring 2012 issue. I think it’s about 10 x 12-inches.
Your work has received recognition from the local art community. Are you considering a career in art history?
Yes. People will start asking me about it when I’m 80. I’m currently studying for my bachelor’s degree in Architecture and Design at the School of Architecture, University of Washington in Seattle. I want to work for the Seattle Art Museum but I’m afraid I’ll never get the chance. That’s what matters most to me. I’d like to have more opportunities to work for the artist community and teach. When I can do it, it will be great. I’ve always liked art, but I haven’t been into it much at all since I was a child. My kids and their friends keep me busy with that.
How does painting help to connect with the audience?
I think drawing and painting have a very similar effect of connecting with the audience. I don’t know why though. I don’t think I have any skill in drawing. I try to work with it and see what happens. And that’s what I like doing. Painting has a special effect by making it more personal than drawing.
What’s your favorite painting of your own?
I don’t like painting of animals or anything like that.
