Why do you think the artistic community in Iowa is so important?

We keep hope alive here. We can show people other perspectives and I think it’s very important to continue to try to educate people through art.  

What do you think is important for our community to do better when it comes to supporting local artists and musicians? 

Go to shows, buy art, buy music and tell everyone about the art you love!

Describe yourself & describe your work!

I paint and draw things I know and feel. The same goes for any music I write. I try to live a life of transparency and truth and this comes through in my art and music.  

Who else do you think we should lift up? Give someone/an organization a shout-out!

Meanz Chan is AMAZING.

What makes you magic?

Life and honesty make me magic. 
Community means conversations!! The more we talk to each other and learn, the better we can make this world.
