sylviaWhat inspires you to create?

art gives people a momentary respite from everything in their lives. i like to create art that will make people and say, “wow! that’s pretty cool” or just bring a smile to their face.

How did you decide to pursue your art form?

i loved the art room in school, it always felt like my home. i felt so comfortable there and loved creating art in that space. so in a lot of ways it was never a decision…art was always a part of me.

How does where you are from impact your creativity?

i live in a robust urban community filled with lots of artistic energy. it inspires me to create the best art i can and encourages me to become a better artist in many different ways.
