why did you like art? 1. I've always had art in my life, my father taught me how to draw when I was very little (my poor mother was forever cleaning my crayon drawings off the wall) and my older sister and my grandmother are both artists so there is lots of art in my family home… Where i place where your idea many start from? 2. My work is inspired by nature and the beauty of the present moment - I look at my practice as a form of problem solving, a way of capturing and communicating the way I see the world. What style describes yourself? 3. My arts practice is extremely diverse and I practice across a wide variety of mediums, currently my favourite (for now) is paper cutting. what the one place you dream of studying? I dream of studying traditional japanese wood block printing and korean paper making to name a few… I also want to try my hand at street art and installation art in Europe and the US website: www.talfitzpatrick.wordpress.com
