When you're not creating amazing works of art, what do you enjoy doing?


Play with my cats, cooking, and finding new music to add to my play list.



Who are your biggest influences?


In the beginning it was Miss Van and Mark Ryden. But now I have a long list of great artists that I admire, they all influence my work as a whole, not individually any more.

Linocut, pen, watercolor, color pencils, and acrylics.



Anything else you want to tell?


“Kitty” (skateboard) has a twin sister, her name is “Lola”, a linocut (she’s the bad sister). The black cat in “Kitty” is the boy cat I had for 13 years, and I still miss him.
