IVAN SOEUN: “I enjoy having an outlet to express my creativity.”

G: Tell me about the rhyme and reason to your creation process.

G: How do you prepare your mind for the creation process?

IS: “I don’t really have a process. I just let the ideas come to me and then create them.”

G: Is there anything you would want to say to those who are trying to get into art and become better?

IS: “Find your art style, everyone’s is different, so find your way to express your creativity.”

G: What are your favorite pieces?
