What got you in to Crypto art?

I started as a cryptoartist when my boyfriend’s dad recommended that I join SuperRare and sell my art online. I uploaded some art and mostly forgot about it, until I received a bid halfway through last year. Then I started actively uploading my art and have been a full-time cryptoartist since then.

Where do you get your inspiration?

My main inspiration is from nature. Nature is so beautiful! From the moss covered trees, to the glittering oceans and millions of animals which are all totally unique... there is so much to be inspired by.

What do you think of traditional artwork?

I love it and I really admire all the artists who created such beautiful art, often without any recognition or payment until after their deaths. This is why I think it’s so important that we remember them now.

Do you think your art is fulfilling a purpose?

Yes, I think so (well.. I hope so!). I hope that I can remind people how beautiful the world we live in is and how it’s so important that keep it this way and look after it.

How did you start out as an artist?

I’m 21, so I haven’t officially been an artist for a long time, but I’ve been drawing ever since I was a toddler and have always loved it. I took art in high school and matriculated with 100% - probably because I spent all my time drawing to cope with the stress of school and exams!

Who or what inspires your work?

I’m inspired by so much! But especially books, book illustrations and movies. My favourite films are ones made by Studio Ghibli, which is a Japanese animation studio.

Which other artist(s) do you admire?

Kristy Glas, Adam Fryda, Charles Grant, Caroline Dy, Thato and Shelly Soneja (to name just a few).

Final question, what’s next for you as an artist?

I’ll be constantly creating and constantly trying to improve. I also hope to become even more involved in the cryptoart community, which has been so wonderful and supportive.
