I was born in Detroit but I have spent most of my life living in Australia.
My inspiration comes from my Mum. When I was toying with becoming an artist, she was there saying: "Yep, go for it, don't be afraid to fail, be afraid not to try."
If that doesn't give someone true inspiration to paint from the heart, I don't know what will.
I draw from artists like Helmut Newton and Brett Whiteley and the musical power of Eric Clapton, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen.
A nice thought: It's not what a painting is, it's what a painting does.
College for Creative Studies (Detroit) - 4-years.
Where I studied art, design, photography and art history.
