work out. Or clean. It’s convenient to work from home and I feel super lucky to get to do that.  However, I’d trade it all for a beautiful, light-fi lled studio where I didn’t have to clean up my paints at the same time every day because we also eat there.  What other art forms/kinds of artists do you have high appreciation for? I am always in awe of artists who can paint realism to such a degree that you would think it is a photograph. That, to me, is mind-boggling.  But abstract will always be my favorite. I always love when people tell me that abstract art looks like something a kid could do.  I take that as the highest compliment.   Kids paint without pretense and with such abandon. Any abstract artist will tell you that their best work comes from that place. And as an adult it’s not easy to get to that place.   What are you completely tired of? Pink and gold together.  Separately, I love them.     As an artist do you see any shifts happening with art since the explosion of micro-blogging sites such as Pinterest and Tumblr? The only shift I see is availability to the masses.  But I think that’s a positive. It means more people are exposed and they are learning what kind of art they love. Art is so important. Viewing it, making it…it’s all part of our insides.   Tell us something interesting about your neighborhood. I live in historic College Park, which is south of Atlanta, near the airport.  It’s very loud here.  But it’s safe and cute and there is a real family atmosphere here.
