Hobbies/ Interests: I love drawing and photography (when I have a camera), but my favorite thing to do is writing. I love writing short stories, poems, and simple essays. Also, I like to create wire mobiles, and metal or clay sculptures.
What is creativity to you? Do you consider yourself to be creative? Why or why not?
Creativity is the ability God has given people to make things and shape stuff to look like what you want it to look like. I am creative, because I know throughout my life I have found the ability to simply doodle a picture or bend some wire and make it look like a person's face or a butterfly. I can tell it is a true gift that God has given me, because people tell me all the time how I have doodled something that would take them "years" to accomplish.
Do you strive to be unique in your artwork? Please explain.

If you could become one of your characters/works of art, which one would you choose? Why?
Haha, I don't know about becoming any of my pieces of art, because most of what I've made is abstract, but one of my older drawings I might like to become, simply because it was a cute, Anime version of me.
What is your favorite accomplishment?
I have a lot of pieces that I like, but I believe my favorite "sculpture" would be my white paper mobile, and my favorite drawing would be the detailed portrait of my friend Brandon.
If you could change one aspect of our society through your work, what would it be?
If there was one thing I could do, I would like to change the way people see beauty. I haven't really thought about that much, but I would try to convince people through art that there is something more beautiful about things than their outer shell.
How does faith play a part in what you do?
