PETIT MORT (PENELOPE DARIO)
Can you start by telling us about your journey to becoming an artist and when you first realized you wanted to be one?
Okay. Well I say I decided I wanted to be an artist when I was 12, but before that I just really liked art. Ever since then it’s just been art.
What was the first medium that you felt really woke you up to your skill?
Honestly, I used to do graphite drawing for years, just like straight-up pencil and paper. But that’s also because I couldn’t afford all those art supplies that were really expensive.
