“Every season I pick one weakness and force myself to get better and produce a series. The only way to over come self-doubt is by developing and producing art until you gain confidence.”
How would you describe your creative aesthetic?
I would describe it as vibrant.
If you could collaborate with any creative in the world for a project, who would it be?
I would love to collaborate with Kanye West – he’s a creative genius and has been known to challenge others around him. I understand he’s not everyone’s favorite person right now but from a creative stand point he’s not afraid to push boundaries which I love. It would be an honor to work with him.
How do you work against self-doubt when it comes to your creative abilities?
Every season I pick one weakness and force myself to get better and produce a series. The only way to over come self-doubt is by developing and producing art until you gain confidence.
What has been your biggest obstacle as a creator and how did you overcome it?
My biggest obstacle was me stopping me from channeling my inner greatness. Often times I found myself comparing my art and journey to others and I never thought I had what it took to be a creator. One day I started reflecting on all the missed opportunities because of self doubt. From that day on I forced myself to affirm myself even on the days where I felt like I sucked.
What three words would you use to describe your work?
Daring, Colorful, Limitless
How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by watching documentaries of creative underdogs making it in the world.
What affirmation would you give to an upcoming creative?
You are great! You’re dope in your own way! Your art has its own place in society.
