Interview with ALEAH CHAPIN:

Your childhood ambition:

To be an artist, whatever that actually means. I just knew that I loved making things and I didn’t want to stop.

Something you treasure:

My home. The place, the people and all the stories that are woven through it that I’m learning to treasure more and more everyday.

Your worst habit:

Not cleaning my brushes.

The aspect of your work that’s most important to you:

That the people I paint are real people, in every sense of the word.

Your first job:

I worked for a caterer. My childhood friend and I would be trusted (somehow) to set up and serve a wedding of 150 people. I was 14.

Someone whose work you highly recommend:

It’s hard to choose one, but I really admire Emily Davis Adams
