Where do you live?

I have lived in Minneapolis, MN for almost 7 years.  I am in love with this city and I’m starting to plan a day to celebrate our anniversary together.

Where do you look for inspiration? 

I’ll page through surface design books or browse online for a bit, but I can always count on epic movie soundtracks to stir up some inspiration. There is so much emotion to build from in there; spin your own stories.

Does your art follow a theme or motif? 

A good deal of my work tends to showcase my love for cats. It sometimes feels unavoidable. They are a constant source of joy for me and they find their way into my whimsical and sometimes metaphysical drawings.  If cats aren’t the main focus, one could nearly always discover a pattern, some foliage, or a shade of olive green in my work.

How does art challenge you? 

I think the loveliest challenge is the process of bringing an idea to life and deciding how that final piece is going to be done. I tiptoe between analog and digital, so sometimes my final pieces have a wide scope of applications.  I’d like to maintain consistency from one piece of work to another, but the constant pull to test new things and discover new techniques often keeps the ball rolling in several directions at once.  It can be discouraging, sometimes, merely to keep the ball in one court.

What words do you live by? 

Hustle + Glow: Work hard, be nice, and stay grateful.
