2. What inspired you to begin creating art?

I started drawing at a very young age. I did it on and off throughout the years. I would say my love for art and creativity in general inspires me. Creating art is like therapy for me.

3. To what degree does your cultural background/heritage influence your work?

I am originally from Haiti and to some extent that is a big part of who I am. So I’d say that it does influence my work. For examples, Haiti is a very mountainous country with beautiful landscapes and you can see that inspiration of mountains and landscapes all throughout my work.

4. What draws you to create with this medium in particular?

I love digital drawing because I find it easier to use to create. Watercolor will always have a place in my heart since it’s mostly where it started for me, but digital gives me more freedom to create the images I like. It allows me to incorporate more elements and textures into my art.

5. Why do you use the colors/forms/shapes/textures/patterns that you do?

I love colors and nature in general so I choose colors and shapes and forms that depict that. I go for mountains, circles and many shapes found in nature. I love the fluidity of natural items.

6. How would you describe the current trajectory of your work?

I am still learning and still growing as an illustrator. I hope to find my very distinct style soon. Until then, I’ll keep creating.

7. Who/ what do you draw inspiration from creatively? Whether it is musical, visual, literary, relgious, etc sources?

I find creation all around me. I am also a photographer so I get a lot of inspiration from my own work and photography in general. Also from people and things around me.

8. What do you do to pull yourself out of a creative block?

I usually do a lot of self care. I have found that creative blocks often mean that I am not taking care of all areas of my life. At least not enough so I take breaks and practice my self care routines to bring me back to my creative mindset.

9. What is the desired effect that you hope for your art to have on its viewers?

I hope my art brings peace and inspires others to be themselves and to find beauty in the little things.
