Effie Loves at the Arts Factory
Where do you draw your creative power from? Who inspires you?
It’s a mix between Bob Ross and Pauly Shore’s character in A Goofy Movie. “Bobby Zimmeruski” (the character) is so lighthearted about everything: quirky, the awkward one in the crowd. Bob Ross is the “happy accident” kind of person. He takes it in stride. When I’m stressed out, I watch him. He’s my role model.
What’s different about Las Vegas from all other places you have lived?
(Having lived in Georgia and Florida) It’s dry and I love it. I like the atmosphere. I’ve met some freaking awesome people. I love the desert style. I love everyone at The Arts Factory. I love coming to work.
What art materials do you choose to use and why?
I dabble in all art materials. It depends on what I want to have pop and recede. I like to include texture and repetition. It’s meditative. I get bored using the same materials and I usually have 4 to 5 projects happening at the same time.
What do you want Las Vegas to know about you?
I’m here! Let’s hang out. I like to talk about art and pick people’s brains.
