My go to mediums are oil, acrylic, watercolor, pen and ink. All art forms I practice have been self-taught and I constantly push myself to experiment with different styles. This helps expand my technique bank and subject matter. As far as inspiration, it comes from all over - from music, a movie or walking around the city. Most inspiration comes at night just before falling asleep in the form of colors and shapes or sometimes a complete work. With a soft spot for the Golden age, you will see influences of art nouveau and art deco in my work. Erté, Dean Cornwell, Harry Clarke all have my love but John Singer Sargent is my hero.
