Describe your piece in three words:

Vacant, bleak, institutionalized.

What was your inspiration?

It’s dementia, and how it’s affected my life and my mom’s life. It’s been a big part of it, so I’m painting people in these vacant, almost hostile spaces.

Does you portrait resemble anyone in particular?

It resembles my relationship with my mom, in a way. Because we’re very close, so it’s more like our relationship and the way we approach this subject.

What were you trying to communicate with this portrait?

I was trying to communicate a sense of being lost or being trapped in a very open space.

What was going through your head as you were making it?

I hope this turns out well. No, I was really trying to focus on getting my technique down because this was the fourth piece and I was really trying to make decisions, move forward with my theme, and get better with my mark and my paint.

How would you describe your art style?

It’s semi-stylized realism.

Will you continue with art in the future?

Oh, definitely.

If you could hang out with one dead artist, who would it be?

Salvador Dali.
