HEY HAYLEY, TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR ARTISTIC BACKGROUND, HOW DID YOU GET INTO DRAWING?
Well I guess I’ve always been creative, either with music or art, ever since I was a kid. My parents were very encouraging and I’d always get paints and art stuff for Christmas! My dad especially liked to get involved and would do little art projects with me and take to me art galleries. So when I said I wanted to do art at university it came as no surprise. I have often thought how grateful I am to have parents that have supported me in what I wanted to do and given me a lot of reign to find out what I like and pursue it. It’s so sad when you see people that are being pushed into a more ‘proper’ or ‘academic’ profession like medicine or law because their parents want them to be successful, when all they want to do really is paint or make things!
