Doublethink Design interview

i was lucky enough to be interviewed by the wonderful Chiara of Doublethink Design. here's a little snippet- click here for the entire interview.

DD: How long have you been creating art for? How has your style evolved since you first began? 
M: I’ve been creating art since I was a very little girl, using markers and pencils before moving onto watercolors and acrylic ink. Around age 8, I became very interested in writing and illustrating my own stories, a passion that has refused to leave me even 15 years later. My style has evolved immensely since I first started — as I discovered new inspirations, textures, and techniques, I became more comfortable with developing my own voice rather than simply imitating what I see in the world around me.  
 
 DD: Were you formally trained in art or are you self taught? Do you think it has helped you or hindered you? 
M: I’m a self-taught artist - everything I create is the result of exploration and experimentation. I recently graduated from college with a degree in English and a degree in Journalism & Media Studies. Because I’m self-taught, I think I’ve been able to develop my individual style without becoming too heavily influenced by any one era, teacher, or technique—in this way, I am thankful. On the other hand, do I wish I could have spent the last four years painting and drawing instead of writing papers? You bet.


DD: As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? 
M: A writer.
