Who is your favorite artist?
It’s a toss up between Leonardo da Vinci and Frida Kahlo.
What is your favorite art space?
I’m cliche… The Met. So much history and amazing works are contained within those walls. Every time I go I see something new.
What works are on your Artspace wish list?
Oh goodness, a lot — and more are added daily. Rose Tinted Lens by Jack Hardwicke, Chelsea Hotel (British Glamour) by Pamela Hanson, For the Love of God by Damien Hirst, Nike by Tobias Keene,It’s All Derivative: Marilyn by Bill Claps, Only One YOU by Shantell Martin, From Glamour Girls by Patrick McMullan, New York City. Flat Iron Building. 1969 by Elliott Erwitt, Untitled, from the series Darkroom 2005-2006 by Michel Campeau… really I could go on forever.
When were you first exposed to art / the art world?
Art has always been a part of my life from as early as I can remember. I have been in art classes since grade school, and since then my love and knowledge of art has only continued to grow.
Do you create art?
Yes. Mostly mixed media works. I love playing with different combinations of mediums and just letting my creativity flow. I shut my brain off when I work on a piece, and just let it happen.
What’s one item you can’t live without?
My iPhone. I’m a total Apple snob, and it contains practically my entire life on it - the Bible, music, phone numbers, pictures… everything. It’s how I communicate.
What’s your favorite food to snack on while in the office?
We have these dark chocolate covered pretzels that I can’t seem to get enough of. They are heavenly.
If you could steal a work from any institution, what would you steal?
Virgin of the Rocks by Leonardo da Vinci at the Louvre. Think I could get away with it?
We have The Great Gatsby stuck in our minds after seeing the movie over its opening weekend. Here are 5 Things available on Artspace that are very Gatsby, Old Sport.
