What keeps me coming back to the studio day after day?
I love to make things, experiment…paint!
For me, there is no satisfaction greater than creating something new that resonates with my curiosities about color, shape, pattern, composition, mysterious narratives and the balance between darkness and humor. To keep my creative brain switched “on” I dabble in a wide variety of mediums and projects- painting, drawing, print making, collage, custom pet portraits, painted paper shooting targets, hand-painted thrift store tchotchkes, mural painting, giant hand-made earrings, illustration, custom car portraits…these weird, painted foam-head taxidermy form thingys…and so on.
