We got the chance to interview her, here are a few things she had to say.
How old are you?
I’m 20 years old
How’d you get into art as well as becoming so good?
I’ve been doodling since as a young as I can remember. My mom went to art school so she was always teaching me little tricks since a really young age and still does now.
When you make art how are you trying to speak through all of your pieces?
My favorite art to make is realism, I love to challenge myself and see how realistic I can get something to look. I feel like my main pieces are usually just focused on realism, where my smaller drawings and doodles have more expression and ideas within them.
My small drawings are usually just me trying to translate my thoughts into a visual form, so the meaning really depends on how I’m feeling. If I’m upset you can see that they definitely have a darker vibe, whereas if I’m happy you can see that too.
It’s not like i’m drawing scary monsters versus sunshine and flowers, but even if I’m sketching a face in a good vs. bad mood you will be able to tell which is which through the way it’s expressed.
You’re very high up in numbers for TikTok. What’s your next move with the app?
I honestly don’t have a plan regarding my TikTok following. I do pay attention to the numbers, but I don’t let it influence how I am on the app/the content I post. I might try to transition into youtube, but I’m kind of just going with the flow as of right now.
What do you plan on doing in the future?
I’m a super indecisive person and it makes me struggle in terms of my future. I have so many different interests that it makes it complicated and stressful to have to “commit” to one.
I’m majoring in Psychology right now, but am thinking of switching to a Bachelor Degree with Individual Concentration. With that, I can build my own major and try to tailor it to fulfill most of my interests.
I don’t know what I’m going to end up doing after college, but I do see myself using the social media platform that I have to help companies with marketing and advertising. I will also always continue to do art in the future, but I think just as a hobby.
Do you have any advice for teens in your field?
A piece of advice I have for teens in my field is to not let numbers change who you are. Do not let having a large following blow your ego up to the point where you no longer care about the things that truly matter, like friends and family.
Try your best to show your true self to your followers, so you don’t get stuck wearing a mask that will be hard to take off. Surround yourself with love when your receiving hate.
Some more than others, but all people with a large following WILL receive hate at some point. You just have to remember that you know yourself better than anyone else, and that some people are trying to judge your entire persona based off of one thing they saw about you.
It doesn’t make sense for you to think that their comment accurately reflects how you are as a person, and you just need to remember that.
Lastly, just keep in mind that if you have a following, people DO look up to you. I’m not saying to preach good values in every video, but try your best to set a good example and don’t promote anything that could harm others.
