What types of materials do you use?
I do this with a lot of my own stuff. I get a lot of encouragement from the kids and I do a lot of my own stuff. I started out using paint and canvas until I got a great color and just kept using it. But, the next time I was in class in art school they kept saying how I had no style and no skills. I was like what’s wrong with me? I started out a bit, I’m not really a painter, I want to know how they think, why don’t you go and see my class and I’d be more than happy to show you what I’m doing.
What can you tell us about your website and Facebook? What is your style?
I’ve set up a website with my site and Facebook page. It basically’s a website with a Facebook group where people ask me about my paintings. I’m more than happy to talk about my paintings and give advice. They can also leave questions if they want though, which is a little bit different than other websites out there.
How do you feel about the Internet, whether people use it for their art or not?
I don’t use it for my art, but it’s good to be aware of. You can be able to communicate instantly from anywhere. The more I learned about it and I think that people have been doing it for an incredible long time that I have no opinion on it and the only reason I started doing it was because someone had an idea. So, for me, I feel like I’m helping people in a new way and it shows in my art.
When do you usually get started with painting?
I started earlier this year. This past year I got a bit bigger; my paintings got bigger, so that I feel like I’m painting more everyday now than during a year. I’m also able to paint every two weeks instead of two months to allow for more time for practice. For the most part I do three to four days and I always have a few hours before I get ready for the next session.
And do you take any other classes other than art school?
I also take computer science so I’m doing a little bit of both. I do get some online classes too, so that’s something I’m looking into. There’s also an online art academy called The Art Academy of Cincinnati that I’m a part of. I also do classes for people who don’t want
