Picture Studios builds simple and affordable studios for smart and creative people. Check out this Q&A interview that we did with local artists at our Charlotte photography studio.

Welcome to Picture Studios. What can you tell us about yourselves?

Instagrant: My name is Grant Mahan. I’m a painter and I’m currently a Master Of Fine Arts candidate at Winthrop University in South Carolina.

Hentailina: My name is Camille. I’m a textile(s) artist. I also do painting and other mixed media art.

Headlss.b: My name is Brennan Frizzell. I like to paint. I sell dolls. I can make handbags and all types of stuff like that.

What inspired you to pursue a career in the arts?

Hentailina: What inspired me to do art is just genuinely being really bad at everything else so I kind of have no other choice…ha ha.

Instagrant: I had a great high school art teacher who helped me realize that art was just my passion and just a part of who I am. I also realized that I have a real passion for teaching others.

Headlss.b : My inspiration for doing art is really nothing. I just picked it up one day and here I am now.

What is your favorite thing about creating art?

Instagrant: It’s that feeling when you know exactly what you’re going to do and you just lock in on painting and just reach this meditative and mindful state.

Hentailina: My favorite thing about the creative process is that I have really bad anger issues so whenever I’m doing art I just really take out my frustration and it’s a lot cheaper than therapy.

Headlss.b: My favorite part about painting is just the part of actually doing it. I never actually think when I’m doing it. I’m just there in that moment and just doing whatever.

What do you hope people get from your art?

Headlss.b: The only thing I hope people get from my work is maybe a headache or whatever comes to their mind. Honestly, art is about free expression and whatever you get from the piece.
