A FEW THINGS ABOUT THE ARTIST
1. What do you do when you’re not making art? (Day job etc...).
During the day, I work at my new job as a cargo office agent at Dulles Airport (Washington D.C.) I am currently pursuing modeling and acting on the side. I have gone to 2 professional photoshoots. Recently, I was contacted by a magazine called Mover Magazine that wants to publish me. In addition, I will be in my first movie called Chase’s Shadow which is a film remastered and a sequel to Chase’s Revenge. I play as Erin who is a dark, evil villain possessed by Mr. End. She is also a shadowalker with superpowers.
2. Why do you make art?
I incorporate my art as actual fabric designs for clothing and matching accessories. My brand name is called COB Abstractart which stands for Creativity Outside The Box. I started my own business as of January 2019. I have two online stores for my fashion line which are Tracie Sperling and COB Abstractart. In addition, I sell custom made products through an outside manufacturer called RedBubble. I have phone cases, throw pillows and coffee mugs that all have my original design.
3. What inspires you?
I have always been a creative person who thinks outside the box. I try to have a different perspective on the world and I like to help other people. Most of my inspiration comes from music, but I like to express myself if I am going through personal experiences. Art is an escape outlet for me to let my emotions out of whatever I am feeling at the time or mood I am in.
4. What/who are your influences?
My main influence is Pablo Picasso since most of my work is abstract in style. I like bold lines, patterns, even some distorted figures which is an illusion of reality.
5. If you could meet anyone dead or alive who would it be?
I would love to meet anyone who is famous like a celebrity. My first choice would be Madonna.
