The first record or CD you ever bought? The last album you downloaded?
It was actually Ace of Base. Hahah right before I discovered Punk Rock.

Scratch my head…so hard it hurts sometimes.
What is your most defining characteristic?
What is your greatest fear?
That they will stop making vegan coconut cream ice cream.
The moment you realized you were an ‘artist’:
After I had a few shows, and I was painting everyday and someone asked what I do for a living. I had to think about it for a minute, then realized I don’t have any other day job… It just happened though. I had no other plan.
Your greatest quality:
Not caring (in a good way).
Something you wish you could change or alter about yourself:
I wish I was more organized with office and business stuffs.

Going to Thailand with someone I just met. It was magical!

Life won’t be so awful, j/k.
Not to rush.
What do you hope to accomplish in the next five years of your life?
I hope to have many solo shows all over the world and paint big, big paintings and have more Hooker Beauty Pageants and events... I have big time happy visions in my brain. And to travel!
