Artist Interview: William Raymond and his continuation with art


Why did you choose to be an artist?
I chose to be an artist because I found a love for the arts when I was younger. Its been my full interest since I was younger and I wanted to continue further into the Arts.

Is there a technique or medium that you haven’t tried but want to?
I’d like to give oil paints a try, but I’d need good place to do it, and that I am not sure of.

What are your plans for after graduation?
I am still looking around for other things in the art field, but not fully sure where I will go after school.

What other jobs have you done other than being an artist?
I have worked at a Boy Scout camp as an assistant scout master.

Do you plan on being a fulltime artist or do you plan on having a separate career along side of your artistic practices?
I’d like to try to be a fulltime artist, but I know I will need to have also a job to get me through my life.
