What are you trying to convey in this artwork? In this piece, I want to show how exciting nature can be. I had been told there were wild donkeys on the island of St. John, and when I found them, it was just incredible. I wanted to capture their gentle yet spunky nature and force people to see them in a new light.
What is your creative process? My creative process is a constant thing. Usually images will pop into my head based on what I’ve experienced throughout the day or over a period of time. I see it in my mind before it ends up on paper. Sometimes I will just start painting and make changes as I go. Other times it is well planned.
What makes your work unique? I think my perspective makes my work unique. I have a background in decorative arts and design and a love for psychology. I am creating a personal response with my work. If I can make someone see something a little differently, then I’ve done my job. I also use a variety of techniques and am not afraid to explore new styles and materials.
What do you like best about being an artist? I am most grateful for being able to do something I love every day of my life. I also love the people I meet along the way.
