How did you get into the industry?

My whole life I was always a creative. My background was in graphic design. I created my first website when I was in the 4th grade. I taught myself how to code websites and learn graphic design software. I thought that’s what I wanted to do with my life all the way up into college. Then I took a painting class and realized I didn’t like graphic design. Actually, I hated it. I decided to pursue painting as my career. So that’s really how I got into being an artist and becoming a painter.
