How long have you been making art?
All of my life, as cliche as that is. On some level I think we all do that, though. Unfortunately, becoming an adult has a way of beating creativity out of most of us...
What is your favorite medium?
I love to experiment, having gone so far as to make my own paint with mashed berries when I was young, but my go-to currently is pen and ink, watercolor, tattoo, or pyrography. I tend to just eat berries now rather than making art with them.
