Studio Visit

"I make a drawing or a note if there is anything that comes to mind. My process starts with the spark of an idea, then a sketch, and finally onto a painting. Sometimes an image or a video will guide the direction of my new work. I usually work on one piece at a time until I am satisfied. Before I start working, I connect my speakers and play music very loudly. I’ve never stopped music while I work. I like to take my time when coming up with a new idea. I research reference images or videos that inspire me and do some writing or quick drawings. The process of transforming an idea to a painting is relatively quick. However, if I get stuck and am unsure of how to move forward while working, I just sit back and stare the canvas for hours. It is unpredictable how the studio’s day will go."
