Street art came about quite accidentally actually. It was 2014, and I found myself looking around the city, really noticing stickers and pastes. I remember thinking, “I wonder if my art could fit in out on the streets and how I could get it out there?” I was basically asking myself if I could fit in the streets. I thought this was a valid question for a rather introverted artist who chooses to spend almost all her time creating alone inside her apartment.
I began the adventure of getting out and putting stickers up (it began with stickers, I LOVE stickers), and it quickly became a fun ongoing activity. I have received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from the street art, and I get very excited when I find people have publicly posted pictures of Phoebe on Instagram.
I see street art as giving new life to one’s art, and to oneself. The more I do it, the more I realize the street is simply another form of collage: finding good placement in terms of color scheme and composition is important, you also never know who’s going to show up next to you or who is going to stick something over you, which is all part of this experience.
