How do you find inspiration?
Debra Lott: I find inspiration in the female form. I continually observe and reflect upon the human experience, intrigued with the uniqueness of features, anatomy, and skin color. I’ve often approached complete strangers in public and asked them to model for me. I’m equally inspired by expressions of human values and emotions with dramatic lighting, shadow, and textures of fabric and skin.
What is the best thing about being an artist?
Debra Lott: One of the most rewarding aspects of being an artist is the process of creating something and watching it come to life, a creation that only an artist can do. Artists are especially sensitive to the beauty, color, and patterns of the world and able to translate that vision into new forms, satisfying themselves and others. The process of creating art is therapeutic and provides a sense of purpose and meaning, a deeply fulfilling and rewarding experience.
