Artist Heather Magann Q&A

Posted by Claire Brandon on

What do you spend your money on?

Besides groceries and rent, I normally spend my money on art supplies and clothes. I usually buy thrifted pieces!

Who is your dream wedding date?

I think Michelle Obama and I would have a great time at a wedding. Everyone there would be jealous, and maybe a little confused. 

If you were an animal, what would you be?

I think I’d be a frog. I’d like to be one of those beautiful, poisonous ones that live in the rainforest. 

What is your pet peeve?

Bug bites that take a really long time to go away and racists. 

Describe your worst hair cut.

I have taken scissors and cut off all of my hair twice in my life. I like short hair, but next time I’ll leave it to a professional. 

Have you ever been a part of a photoshoot before?

I have!

React to this quote: “I love new clothes. If everyone could just wear new clothes everyday, I reckon depression wouldn’t exist anymore.” - Sophie Kinsella 

I will admit that every time I purchase a new piece of clothing I feel better for a little while, but the moment is fleeting. The happy feeling associated with most of my exciting purchases has proven to be pretty temporary. Is that a bummer? 

What is a sacrifice you’re happy you made?

Recently, I’ve sacrificed a lot of my social time to work on artistic projects. I feel very proud of myself when I can sit down and work on something until I am happy with it. 

What is something you romanticize doing, but probably never will?

Living on the moon. 

What is something most people love that you don’t understand?

Timothée Chalamet

Do you have a favorite vintage garment?

I have a beautiful floral button up maxi dress that I practically live in year round. It’s so comfortable and can be dressed up or down easily. 

Scale of 1-10, how much anxiety do you have about answering these questions?

Hmmm. Probably a 5? Questions make me a little nervous, no matter what they are. 

What is a concept our culture thinks is new but really isn’t?

Systemic Racism and high waisted jeans. 

 Thank you, Heather.
