What gives you the most joy?
Who or what is your personal inspiration?
I’m inspired by a lot of things ranging from artists, nature, my own childhood – but most of all by working. Being busy painting or working on a project always fuels the next painting or idea. It can be hard to channel all those ideas or impulses, but it’s essential.

What are things needed for a basic paint project?
A thought/vision. Colour and brushes.
What item would you be lost without?
It’s sad to say but I’ll say it anyway: my phone.
Do you have a muse?
What projects are you currently working on?
Due to the pandemic, my residency projects have all been cancelled and so have a few shows. I’m taking the time to get some rest and paint in a not-by-deadline-driven environment, which is quite pleasant. I have this constant flow of new ideas that I’m giving the opportunity to turn into something real instead of just a scribble in a notebook.
