Would you be interested in collaborating with me?
Thank you, how very sweet! I’m extremely honored that you like my work enough to ask. It depends on many things. The exposure it will bring, the time I have, and what your concept is.

It never hurts to ask, contact me and I’ll see what I can do.
I’m an aspiring artist, do you have any free advice for me?
Take a business class. Never stop creating. Keep practicing, enroll in technique classes or educate yourself. Support other artists. Show your finest, completed, and most cohesive works. Find your own voice, and tell your unique story. Always strive to better yourself, not simply as an artist, but as a person. People don’t just respond to your art, they respond to the person you are. Be the best you, and your art will show it.
