INSPIRATION: Vivid and interesting color palettes, taxidermy, illegal art, ambient noise rock, classic cars, Americana roots music, love, kittens, and the beach.

FAVORITE PLACE TO GET AWAY IN MY AREA: The beach!

ARTIST/CREATIVE YOU’D WANT TO HAVE LUNCH WITH: Egon Schiele

FAVORITE TATTOO: My black and gray dissected bunny rabbit tattoo on my left forearm.

MOST OVER-HYPED ARTIST: Damien Hirst

PERFECT SOUNDTRACK FOR WRITING: the 180 Degrees South soundtrack.

WHY I LOVE WHERE I LIVE: Perfect climate, the smell of fish and smog everywhere I go, how the ocean humbles me while inspiring me; and lastly, when I forget where I am, I can look up, wherever I may be, and see the tall, swaying palm trees, keeping watch over me and whispering in the breeze, and I know I'm home.

ART YOU MAKE (IF YOU MAKE ANY...): Surrealist, de-constructivist, brightly colored paintings and drawings. Oh, and the art I make with words.
