I am a 22 year old artist exploring the world around me and inside of my head. I spend most of my time painting, searching for inspiration and daydreaming about snacks.
2. Who/what is/are your inspiration/s?
I love anything quirky that sticks out.
3. How did you come up with your blog name?
I came up with Deep Fried Freckles a year ago when I was combining words that described myself. The first thing I thought of was freckles, and while doing so I was eating french fries. I have a 12 year old palette.
4. When did you realize you had passion for art and wanted to pursue it?
I have been creating art since I was a toddler. I always knew I would choose a career involving art and I am lucky enough to have supportive people in my life that believe in me and helped me be where I am today.
I really can't choose. I am still learning so much about both and each day I grow a stronger appreciation for different mediums.
6. What are your other hobbies aside from art?
I love spending time with animals. I'm the girl who sneaks off to play with a roommates dog at a college party. I dog walk and pet sit 3-4 times a week and also volunteer at my local animal shelter.
7. Which of your many brilliant artworks is your favorite?
Thank you for the compliment! And I would have to say my favorite so far is my mermaid mural for Illusions Salon. It was my first mural so It took me weeks of repainting, loving and loathing. I really feel like I put my whole heart into that mural.
I would say to just find your passion and never stop creating. If you truly love something others will see that and appreciate your work.
