Why did you pick this picture?
I just completed this drawing last night.
Where did the idea come from?
As with most of my drawings I don’t start out with any preconceived image in mind. Each mark or element in in response to the previous, so it’s a sort of conversation between lines, shapes and colors.
What does this art mean to you?
I strive to make art that is accessible yet intriguing, playing with perspectives and abstractions. I’m interested in creating visual space for the viewer to wander around and spend time in.
What can you tell us about yourself?
I’m from California and studied art in Chicago and New York. The different cities definitely affected my choice of colors, now that I’m back on the west coast my colors are much brighter.
What more can you tell us about your art?
I feel that I make my best work when I step back and allow the art to happen, rather than forcing my will into the image.
