Introducing Hops, a proud native to Seattle, her style is letter-based in what may be eloquently labeled as SPORTY. Read on for a little peek into her creative mind...

What artist movement has been particularly influential in your development
H: The artistic movement most influential to my work is that of the New York graffiti scene in the 80's. That classic lettering is a style that resonates in much of my graffiti.

How/ Why did you start writing Graffiti?
H: I started writing graffiti because I loved the way it looked in the streets, on walls, signs, trucks, etc. I loved the idea of leaving an anonymous mark. Essentially, I started writing graffiti because I loved vandalism.

H: In pursuing graffiti: be smart, be safe. In pursuing art: there is no such thing as failure.
