How would you describe your style? Are there any artists / designers that you particularly look up to?
My style has evolved a lot over time. I’m currently finding myself drawn to more modern, minimalistic design than ever before, particularly as it applies to home décor and fashion design.
I have so many favorite artists. Even when I was primarily a painter, my favorite artists were usually sculptors like Anish Kapoor, Anthony Gormley and Cornelia Parker.
What do you feel makes your work unique and truly your own?
I tend to work in traditional mediums like oil paint and plaster; materials which wouldn’t be considered unique. However, the ideas are unique and individual to me. I always strive to make something I’ve truly never seen before, but now, more than ever, within a contemporary design context.
What sort of things inspire you? Where do you look for inspiration?
I will always be most inspired by nature; it’s the one connecting thread that has remained constant in all of my work. I love looking at landscape photography and contemporary takes on landscape painting. I’ve spent a lot of time on Pinterest in the last year. It’s such a great source for fine art and design imagery. I also frequently visit popular art and design blogs like ‘The Jealous Curator’ and ‘This is Colossal.’
When do you feel the most creative?
When I’m alone with my thoughts, listening to great music.
What is your creative process like?
I’m a big believer in going out and finding your inspiration. It’s always out there waiting for you. I can’t just sit around hoping an idea will pop into my head. I believe you have to look at as much as possible, constantly sifting through imagery until something begins to speak to you.
