CA: How did you get into art?
AM: I would say my sister and dad because they both know how to draw. But I just always loved it, always had a passion for it. CA: Does your dad and your sister continue to draw?
AM: My dad doesn’t but he pushes us to draw. He didn’t see art worth anything because back then it wasn’t a money maker. With us, he would tell us not to waste our talent. I liked drawing and it was fun. My sister is busy with other stuff but will paint when she has the
CA: Let’s start with the beginning. Why the name ArtByRinna as your moniker?

I can’t say that for something that needs to be more articulate like figures. There
CA: What made you first start drawing? RB: I used to write all over the walls in the house with markers and crayons. Whatever I could get my hands on really. I used to do it so much that my mom wouldn’t even bother cleaning after a while. She purchased washable markers so instead of telling me don’t do that, she embraced it and could wash it away. CA: How did your style evolve since you were a kid to now?
RB: I definitely have more confidence in my lines and it has led me to
