1. How did you get your start in the artistic community?
Fresh from school I escaped the icy tundra of Pittsburgh, and started my professional Phoenix career, in the massively growing architecture field as an architectural graphic designer. My extensive knowledge in 3-dimensional design dovetails nicely into my current passion of painting fantastically bold, graphic, and colorful artwork.
2. What or who inspires you?
The Southwest Sonoran Desert is a never -ending source of inspiration. Both the "Mars like"plants, and the super fast desert animals, (running for shade) fascinate me!
3. How do you come up with your creations?
Although proficient in all mediums, I enjoy the spontaneity of acrylic... But, the smell of oils! Sometimes, watercolors, too.
4. When do you feel the most creative?
My Zen happy place is with a canvas in front of me, a brush in my hand and a fantastic song in my ear! I live and breathe art 24-7!
