"My name is Angela Smith the artist behind ZaeWild."
Q: How did you come up with your social media handle?
"I’m a mom of 3. My kids initials are ZAE and they are pretty wild. That’s where ZaeWild comes from."
Q: Where do you find inspiration?
"I have found a lot of my inspiration though life as a minority. It hasn’t always been easy growing up as a black woman in Utah, but I feel like I can bring attention to important matters. I am also heavily influenced by anything floral."
Q: What advice would you give aspiring artists?
"You can create. Everybody can create. So just go for it! I never thought of myself as an artist and I know there are other people far more talented than me. But I love to create and if I wouldn’t have gone for it, I wouldn’t be where I am today."
