Sarah´s questions for me

1) When did you first know you had a talent for art?
The only steady passion that I have, beside my family, is art. I think about art every day, Iam glad when I have the time to do art, I am glad to make art for others. It makes me happy when I look at art of other artists,... So, I knew very early that I have a talent for art.

2) hat is your favourite medium?
I love to use my dip pen and ink. Since I have a graphic tablet, I love to draw digitally, too.

3) Do you ever fear the blank page?
Yes, sometimes. Then I try to relax and to procastinate to cope with it.

4) What is your goal in 2015?
I hope to work with a lot of nice clients.

5) What is the most challenging thing about the art you make?
I often think I could have done it better.

6) Describe a typical day. Do you keep a schedule?
I get up early and make my kids ready for school and kindergarten. When I am alone at home, I begin to work on things for my business.

8) Coffee or tea? What is your favourite drink?
I am a coffee addict.

9) What is the best art advice/tip you´ve ever received?
Keep making art. Make art as often as you can.

10) Are you a self-taught artist or did you go to art school? Where?
I studied art therapy- it is no normal art school, but I learned a lot of different techniques and how to make art.

11) What is your favourite social media? Facebook? Instagram? Others?
I love Instagram and Facebook. Twitter is also great, but you can not do everything at the same time. You have to choose. So I would say I use Facebook and Instagram the most...
