What inspires you?
I am inspired by everyday life and surroundings, as well as my memories, imagination, music, movies, and nature. I’m always on the lookout for new techniques to experiment with.

What is your most used medium when you create your art?
I love to experiment with different media, but I most commonly use acrylic paint because it dries quickly and allows me to create multiple layers in a short period of time. I also use oil color, oil stick, charcoal, soft pastel, and spray acrylic.

What is your favorite color?
I love using all colors in my artwork, but lately, I’ve found myself drawn to using blue and orange in particular.

Who is your favorite artist?
I admire the works of Joan Miró, Hieronymus Bosch, Willem de Kooning, Henri Matisse, and Maud Lewis.
