INTERVIEW BETWEEN CHANTE’ HALL AS THE INTERVIEWER AND ARTIST IRIS BONNER; THE INTERVIEWEE.
Q:Hey Iris, welcome to your Making Dreams Reality interview. I want to congratulate you on all your success and recently celebrating your “Freak Show” which was amazing if I might add. Let me hop right in and ask you how do you make your dreams a reality?
A: Thank you so much, I appreciate it. That night went by so fast for me, I was super excited, and I’m glad people captured a lot of footage from the show. The way I try to make my dreams a reality is always being real with myself, and knowing what I want to accomplish exactly. I make my dreams a reality by expressing myself, and luckily I can do that through my art.
Q: What is it about art that feeds your soul, why do you love it so much?
A: Honestly, Just being able to bring exactly what’s on my mind to life. Painting the picture of my thoughts for everyone to see is what feeds me and that’s what I love so much about it.
Q: How do you explain your style of art?
A: Well, I pretty much just paint a lot of what I feel. Most of my work jumps right at you, it’s very vibrant and it intrigues you.
Q: How do you feel about all the love and support you receive from your work?
A: It’s overwhelming, but I love it! It’s amazing to know that you can have connections with so many people through one form of expression. It’s mind blowing.
Q:What advice would you give to others about making their dreams reality?
A: mmm.. I know this is going to sound cliche, but I would tell people to always believe in yourself and to work hard at what you want. I would like to tell them to always follow their dreams, there is NO such thing as giving up!
