Describe your personal style: I personally have never drawn models. I use the medium of acrylic and oil above pencil. When i use pencil I draw portraits. Many pieces of work are often a typical theme in an edgy format.

Where do you go on your breaks from class? I usually go for coffee. When I don’t I like to try different cafes for pastries.

What is your favorite thing about FIT? My favorite part about FIT is how comfortable the surroundings are in such a competitive place. Many don’t realize in order to do your best, you have to feel your best.

Who or what inspires you? I think I inspire myself a lot. Seeing past work and seeing how far I’ve come is important, and keeps me going. It’s almost like I’m competing with myself.

What do you want to do after you graduate from college? After I finish attending FIT for my AAS in Fine Arts. I would like to focus n advertising as well and eventually receive my BFA while studying abroad.

The opportunity to meet so many of the great professors and students here. It gives you a different perspective on the school itself.

Be employed! More specifically become an art teacher or possibly even go into toy design.
