I live, quite literally, between two vastly different worlds - the city and the ocean. My favorite thing to do is to take a long walk and observe things closely: a tree bending in the ocean breeze, a bird perched on a rock, a person huddled at a bus stop on a foggy day. I come home and paint what I saw, or what I felt, during these walks. I also like to lift images and themes from my own nocturnal dreams. My preferred medium is watercolor and ink on paper, and I experiment with different textures, colors, and styles to keep things interesting.
Working with videographer Glen Kinion, I illustrated this video for singer-songwriter Mike Rufo.
