We recently asked Annie some questions about her inspirations:
Q: Where do you find your creative inspiration?
A: "Past experiences, People around me, my inner thoughts"
Q: Why do you do what you do?
A: "I simply cannot do anything else. I can do whatever I want with my art."
Q: What art/artist do you most identify with?
A: " andy warhol "
Q: What role does an artist have in society?
A: " To give people a reason to love life. A lot of people think that art is unnecessary and rather unimportant when it comes to human's needs. In some way they are right, straight up, we don't need art to survive. But my point is, what else will you do once you're surviving? what is there to make it worth surviving, to make this life, a life that you love. What does it take to actually feel alive, instead of just surviving? That is where artists come in. Any type of art, whether it be painting, music, books, movies or things as simple as colors of everyday objects, I think is what gives meaning to life. Artist are responsible to create, preserve and share passion in a society that wishes to do more than simply being alive.

And to the people that still insist that are is unimportant, I tell them , well throw away all the books in your house, all your favorite clothes, and movies or games, get rid of the T.V and the radio, as well as any streaming platforms, stop listening to music, stop scrolling the internet aimlessly, give up your smartphone and any thing that a designer or some sort of artist has contributed to that is part of your life. How do you enjoy that life?
Q: What is your artistic outlook on life?
A: "Anything I can imagine, I can create "
Q: What advice would you give your younger self?
A: "Don't wait to completely invest in art. Just do it. Also don't put you cup of tea, next to your cup of paint water. That's just gross."
