What was it that first drew you to art?
LV: It has always been a natural interest for me since I was really young. I used to sit in my bedroom or this large chair in my Mom’s living room and doodle and draw away when there was any downtime. I was also a shy child and it was a comfort for me to be able to use it as a way to express myself.
What inspires your creativity?
LV: I am inspired by so many things. It can come from editorials, music, film, traveling or just a walk with my daughter in the afternoon.
What is your most important artist tool?
LV: I use quite a few different types of media so they are all very important to the creative process for me
Which of your artworks are you most proud of?
LV: Each piece I create, I do so with passion and upon finishing up each one, I have that sense of pride at it’s completion. If I had to choose one though, I would say “Cricket”. When I completed this piece I almost put it in my archives and was not even going to share it or sell it. I went ahead and did so anyway and now today it is one of my most popular pieces to date.
