In life, I look for the same qualities I use in my art. I am satisfied with a piece when it is bold and direct and bursting with energy. I want it full of bright colors and unexpected textures.
I use most media, but love those that show off or create textures. I add unusual everyday things to my paintings, such as gauze and buttons. My love of travel provides the inspiration for what I do.
I want people to see the world in vivid colors and robust textures, not just simple black and white.
