Baha - What do you like best about the creative process?
Ceci - I love when a vision appears in my mind and then soon after, bring that vision to life by manifesting what I see in my head on to a sketchbook, canvas, or wall. I also love the messy creative process of painting because I feel it brings out more creativity and inspiration by fully letting go and immersing myself into my art.
Baha - What do you like least?
Ceci - I'd say the thing I like least about the creative process is being stuck or un-inspired for a certain amount of time. Although, eventually you always get past that. There's so much out there in life that can keep inspiring you through out your creative journey.
Baha - What motivates you to keep creating?
Ceci - My strong passion and dedication for art is definitely a key motivator for creating new works. Also making music is a great motivator for me, and often helps me overcome obstacles if I'm feeling stuck or un-inspired
Baha - Has art connected you to other people?
Art might be an isolating profession for some, but for me it's definitely led me to constantly meet and collaborate with other artists and creative people like myself. I've definitely fallen in love with the art of mural making, because it fully exposes me to the world. Painting public walls creates beauty, positivity, and inspiration to everyone around or passing by. I've witnessed how people stop in their footsteps, taking just a moment out of their everyday, hectic lives, to admire and breathe in the healing beauty and boldness that murals portray. Seeing people of all ages stopping by to watch me paint, or coming up to me to compliment or cheer me on, is forever priceless. I've witnessed how painting murals can affect everyone, to anyone around. Healing people through art with their eyes and hearts is why I continue to keep striving to create new murals for the public eye.
