What is one word that describes your artist style? Actually, three words: Clean, Simple & Eclectic

 

How did you get started working with ROLLOUT? Figured I should follow my own advice: seek, find and retain the best designers in the world of graphic imagery and collaborate!

 

Can you share any of your secret tips? Follow, do not question, your initial gut reaction
Never look back!

 

What did your parents want you to be instead of an artist? I was one of the lucky ones. My parents encouraged me to follow my passion: “if you love what you do, your life will have purpose and you will be happy and healthy”

 

Is there a piece of art you wished you had created, and why?:
Mary Pratt’s Red Currant Jelly – 1972 oil painting. I love that while using a 16th century technique, she painstakingly delights in a contemporary and mundane topic representing to me a slower pace of life!

 

What gets you excited about tomorrow? The opportunity to collaborate with other disciplines while doing my work.

 

How would you refer to the current artistic style and mindset you live in today? Simplify, Simplify, Simplify.

 

Anything else you’d like to add? A heartfelt thanks to those who have made my progress possible.
