Q: You were last year’s first prize winner! What made you not compete this year?
A: I had already won previous prizes, and I felt that I had plenty of supplies. I would have preferred if the prize went to someone who could have benefitted from it.

Q: Do you have a favorite color?
A: My favorite color always seems to be changing, but it’s an indigo-violet color right now. I’ve always liked saturated colors in general.

Q: What is the hardest part of creating a painting?
A: The hardest part of creating a painting is usually the middle stage for me. The middle stage is where, usually, I’m not too fond of the painting, and it can sometimes be demotivating when it doesn’t look how you expected it to.

Q: How does it feel to be a student of the year?
A: I’m honored that all these amazing students and artists chose me. It is a privilege, and I can’t thank everyone enough.

Q: Who inspires you to be an artist?
A: There isn’t any specific artist that has inspired me to create art. It’s just always been something I’ve enjoyed. There have been multiple artists that have inspired me to try different art.

Q: What do you like most about being an artist?
A: What I like most about being an artist is being able to create things that were only once an idea. It’s not always what you expect, and sometimes it’s better than what you expect.
