Tell me about your experience with Sketch, how you got started.
I did school training for a year, doing shiatsu, but I was at Sketch all the rest of the time. I just loved the community and the vibe, and being able to do any kind of art form, because that’s totally who I am. Being at Sketch, I can make clothes, and then I can do silkscreening, and then I can record.
I spent a lot of my time at Sketch. I did volunteering, teaching classes here and there, life drawing and stuff like that, helping people out and hanging out. They offered me a CA position, which was awesome. Getting paid to do what I love, and be where I love, and help out people, of course!
