Being Creative


  • Says most of her personality comes from her mom, a radical artist and the "black sheep" of the family.
  • Other than her mother, no one supported her decision to go to college to study art.
  • Peers thought she had talent, but said she'd never make any money, wouldn't be able to pay back student loans.
  • Was mentored by her high school art teacher, who provided her with supplies, helped her apply to art schools.
  • For years, she had to take waitressing jobs on the side to support her art.
  • Says the evolving nature of street art helped her understand it's cool to be "a work in progress."
  • Realized you can't wake up one day and change the world; you change yourself first, then the people around you, etc.
  • Her goal as an artist is to make her audience more tolerant of others' experiences.
