for the past 6 years or so. Hoping for an upgrade soon before this one decides to kick the bucket in the middle of a drawing.

Anzzia: What impact has social media had on your work/brand?

Paige: Social media, specifically Twitter since I use it the most, probably has quite a large impact on my work. It exposes me to other artists and their work and they all inspire my art. It also connects me to other peoples’ personal experiences with just, life in general, and that helps make me more aware of different situations around the world, which also impact my mindset when I create.

because I’m finishing up college, and I can’t say I’m a fan of the open-air studio space in my department. The presence of many other students makes it hard to concentrate because of chatter, so I work on my art from home as much as possible. So far it’s been working the best for my creativity.

Anzzia: What work do you most enjoying doing?

Paige: It’s a tie between drawing environments, and my personal character, Anne. I’m a huge fan of creating an atmosphere and filling up an environment with details and objects. It can be pretty tedious, but the end result makes it worth it. In addition, I also enjoy drawing my character so much I wish I could just make drawing her my life instead.

Anzzia: What programs do you use to accomplish your best work on a daily?

Paige: Adobe Photoshop.

Anzzia: Are you a PC or MAC user? Why?

Paige: I use MAC, and for no reason in particular. I got a laptop in high school for Christmas and it’s just what I’ve been using
