My new work is created with acrylic paint, oil sticks, china markers and gloss glazes. The
paintings have a rougher, more textured surface.
My themes are inspired by travel, classes, books, music, architecture, relationships, a night
time walk, popular & foreign culture, people-watching, advertising, movies, beauty, even
I don't think it's important where the inspiration comes from; it just needs to exist. I want
to translate those adventures and desires into the work.
