Hey there,

Volta Voloshin-Smith is a self taught watercolor artist who specializes in drawing food and snacks. She is the artist behind Color Snack, an art studio that produces color-infused bit of art aimed to feed your soul & inspire creative risks in your sketchbook. Originally from Moldova, she now lives in Dallas, Texas with her husband.

On today’s episode, I chatted with my fellow Cherry Bombe Squad Volta Voloshin-Smith about why it is important to pursue what you love, especially as an immigrant, our everyday creative habits as well as food as a childhood love language. My favorite part is our shared love for sailor moon as well as the discussion about imposter syndrome. It’s an episode packed with food for thoughts, and I can’t wait for you to dive in, let’s go!!

Five Nutty Questions

Who are you, as a snack?
I believe this dessert is called ispahan. It has two pink macarons shells, and in the middle you get raspberries and cream. I think that’s what I would be as a snack, cause it’s pink, it has berries and some cream in it. It’s the perfect combo for me!

Why are you drawing “birds on snacks”?
About 3 years ago, a friend was doing a “birdtober challenge” where she would paint a bird every single day in October. I wanna do it too but I’ve never painted birds before. And I know if there’s no elements of food, I’ll prolly never finish it. So I just randomly decided to put a bird on a snack, and started drawing. To my surprise, people found them very funny and they really liked the collection! 

What is your mantra when shit hits the fan?
I do have a mantra, and I actually wrote it on my mirror in the bathroom. It says “I can learn, I can grow.” It’s a reminder for me, that maybe I don’t know everything, but I can learn and I can grow, so I can figure this out one way or another.

Any plans for your last meal?
I would say it would have to be some kind of colorful pastry dessert, prolly with strawberries, cause I love strawberries. Something with the texture of a little bit crunchy, maybe also with somewhat citrusy and tartness. I love that combo, but it also needs to be sweet. Overall, I love all kinds of food, I don’t want to pick just one!

Tell me something nuts!
I found two partners to work with me to create a mobile APP for my artwork! I don’t know anything about APP development, but I just had this idea and I was really passionate about it. And I think it’s total nuts that two complete strangers were referred to me, and they were like this is great, we can make it happen! OMG!


I truly hope you feel inspired from my conversation with Volta, and I’d love to connect with you on instagram if that’s your cup of tea! If you enjoyed the conversation, please leave me a review to let me know, as it will tremendously help us reach more like minded folks!!
