I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!

Interviewed artist: KatyLipscomb :iconkatylipscomb:

:bulletyellow: Tell us what defines you as a person.
I think my defining characteristics are warm and friendly, but very determined. I work hard, and I am passionate about every project I participate in.

:bulletyellow: How did you find out about deviantART and why did you join the community?
I found out about deviantART as soon as I turned 13. The summer before I attended high school, I was searching the internet for ways to share my art online, and devianrART was the first community that popped up in my feed. The community was so warm and helpful, that I had to stay.

:bulletyellow: When and how did you discover your passion for art?
I have been passionate about art ever since I was a little girl. Since the age of two or three, my mom ensured that I had my own space to be creative. She would give projects and crafts for my brother and I to work on, including making a pipecleaner zoon and costumes for our beanie babies. I think it was only natural, that my curiosity for art would blossom from there. In the fifth grade, I had one of my pieces from art class displayed at a local library. From that point on, I was determined to get even better at drawing.

:bulletyellow: What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?
Inspiration strikes me at the most random moments, but I think I am most inspired after looking at other artists' work. There is so much creativity in this world :D

:bulletyellow: What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?
I would probably be lost without art. I heard somewhere that if you are going to be something like an artist or a musician, it is best to have no backup plan. That way you are required to succeed.
While that is a bit dramatic, I think there is a lot of validity to that mindset.

:bulletyellow: What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it special? Does it have a story behind it?
This is the deviation that changed the course of my style and career forever. I think I can attribute my current success to this piece.

:bulletyellow: Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?
Yes! I think most artists do, but insecurities are what make artists strive to be better.
I am constantly thinking about what I could be doing better, and use those thoughts to make my pieces even better.

:bulletyellow: Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?
Certainly. I was very introverted through most of middle school after having to deal with a big move. Art helped me to communicate with people in my own way.

:bulletyellow: What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?
I have always wanted to take the grand tour of Europe! It would be a dream come true to get to view all of that amazing artwork. It's not too late though! I am still young, and fully plan to eventually.

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?
Commit to every project you work on. You never know what will be your "Big Break". 100% of the big opportunities that have come my way were unplanned and unexpected.
