What has inspired you along the way?

Definitely the work of other artists and being in nature.

Favorite YAC memories?

Lol, definitely the ARTaThons. Nothing like pumping out art on a deadline with an abundance of snacks, creative company and lack of sleep!

A mention about the value of YAC?

There is a unique relation to art at YAC which differs from what you find in school. First off everyone is there because they want to be. Second, everyone is working in different mediums and you don't really know each other from “school,” so you really build you special relationships. These friendships are more closely related to the relationships you make for life as a person living a life in the arts.
