Hey! Tell us a little bit about yourself please, your name, where you live etc.
A: So my name is Tram-Anh, I’m 18. I’m French and I live close to Paris (so I basically spend all my time in that wonderful city). As a third year uni student, I’m currently in exchange at Toronto, Canada.
How did you first become interested in art?
A: As long as I can remember, I’ve always loved drawing. At the beginning I wasn’t really good, but with time and dedication I got better!
Where or who do you look to when you’re stuck in a creative rut?
A: I often have time when I have no creative ideas at all. But I have several ways to get inspired; Instagram and Pinterest are my main sources of inspo, there are so many crazy talented people on those platforms. I often look at magazines, blogs, and I go to art exhibitions. Another great source of inspiration is the world, spotting all its little details, a particular sunlight, the architecture and so on.
Why did you start and Instagram account – did you originally intend for it to be a creative outlet?
A: I’ve been on Instagram for a bit more than a year now. Originally I didn’t want to have an account because I found Instagram too superficial and time-consuming. But I found out that it was a great way to share my art, and to talk to/meet amazing creative people!
If you’re not enjoying making a piece or something goes wrong, what do you do?
A: My art is the only thing I’m totally confident in. I don’t have a lot of self-confidence, but I know I’m capable to make art. So if something goes wrong, I just assume I can do it better next time, and I do it again.
If you could be anywhere right now, where would it be and why?
A: I’m very happy to be in Toronto right now, it’s like a breath of fresh air. It is a constant discovery, of a culture, a language, a city. But I’m very much looking forward to come to New York in December!
