Artist Of The Month: Charlotte Proctor

Senior Charlotte Proctor

Q: When did you start creating art pieces?

A: When I was really young. I didn’t start taking it seriously until middle school so about 7th or 8th grade.

Q: What got you into art?

A: My sister. She’s a very talented artist. I was inspired by her works.

Q: How often are you creating pieces?

A: I draw everyday so it’s a part of my life. If I’m doing a professional work, then it’ll take me two to three weeks.

Q: What is your favorite form of art that you create?

A: Definitely painting.

Q: What is your favorite piece you’ve made so far?

A: I have this big acrylic painting hanging up in my room. I made that the day after I got my wisdom teeth removed and it showed how I felt that day. It is my favorite.

Q: Do you have any ideas for the future that you’re excited for?

A: Definitely oil and stipple painting. I’m really excited to try them out.

Q: Do you have a set art style or is it whatever comes to mind?

A: Abstract. Doing the faces and people, less color, and less lines makes it more expressive.

Q: Would you say you’re better at drawing people, animals, objects, or landscapes?

A: People. I love drawing people in general. Recreating them is my strong suit.

Q: Where do you get your inspiration?

A: From my brain. I will think about it, put it down, and see where it goes.

Q: Do you find it difficult to be creative at times?

A: Yes, sometimes, especially in spring. My creativity takes a toll down in spring and also when I’m not feeling happy.

Q: Do you have any advice for those wanting to get better?

A: Practice is key. Practice makes you better. Also, you can form your own art style.
