RINA: I was even uncomfortable
calling myself an artist. I was really searching
for something. I was looking, and the answer
seemed to be creativity. And I looked around. And there was RISD CE. And I was like, oh, it’s
so close to my home. And I could go there. And that’s how it started. It’s awesome, because you
are surrounded with people who are like really– who are speaking and seeking
what you are seeking. So it’s like it
was really perfect. They taught like just
learning the materials. You need to understand
the materials, the process of painting, how
to put a painting together. l learned how to do
brushstrokes and how to really get the full
range of my brushstrokes. So you always have those tools. So now when I paint,
I have the freedom. I’m not hesitating to pick
a tool, like I’m not letting that dictate that so much. I think by the end I have
to say the feedback that was given to me on the
exit interview was amazing. And I think that was
very pivotal to me. They did the interview and
they saw the portfolio, and they said, you’re ready. You need to show. And you need to just for two
years, put your head down. You are making work, right? You have a point of view. You know what you’re doing. Just do it. I think as a creative
professional, you definitely have two or three
things going on in your life right now, at least for me. But I have Rina Studio,
which is my creative outlet. And this will forever be– like till the day
I die, it’s going to be– my studio
will be part of me. It’s me.
