Art and design where a big part of my life early on.
I made the natural transition from painting to illustration & design over the years & in-between worked in kitchens as a pastry cook. It’s a mixed up resume but somehow kitchen life & studio life seemed too merge naturally. I am also proud of my work I did at kate spade. I meet wonderful people that have influenced my life and the direction it turned. What inspires you and your designs?
Nature. Everyday life.
I moved from NYC to LA 2 years ago. It is so different. I am so inspiring – all the new textures and color combinations are influencing me in ways I could have never imagined unless I experience it.
What is your favorite piece?
Well, that’s tough but I like this painting I did when I first got here.
I have found i can work more freely here in California.
I have the space and things seem less precious here.
How has the your area influenced your work?
Light. Color. & the plant variety out here in California.
