What does work mean to you and what do you do? To work is to commit to your passion. As an artist, I have to consciously remind myself to work everyday. Whether its sketching a doodle, mixing paints to discover a new shade of pink, or reading a poem - to work is to stimulate your mind in a way that will inspire you, make you more productive, and essentially contribute to your self-growth. 

Tell us a dream you’ve made come true?  I always dreamt of creating  a  platform where I can not only share my own work, but develop a community where artists who share a common lust for the arts can come together and share their work as well. I made that dream come true my creating Serious Boyfriend.
