First Impressions
This US artist reveals she has a strong affinity with nature…
Sasha Ira

Where did you grow up and how has this influenced your art?

I grew up in various places; my family moved around quite a bit. And as a child I spent all my time playing outside, doing what I wanted. I even remember spray-painting a wall in our old house with my siblings. So just having that freedom aided in my being able to pursue art.

What, outside of art, has most influenced your artwork?

I would say nature – just being outdoors and appreciating the beauty. Feeling the wind run up against my skin, or the smell of the wet earth after the rain. These simple things bring such a sense of peace over me. My emotions and the things I go through have been a large influence over my work as well.

Does one person stand out as being helpful during your early years?
