What inspires you?
I’m inspired by things all around me:
water on a window, the arch in a dancers back,
The interesting part is how those inspirations are expressed, through the medium, scale, colors, mood, etc.
What’s special to you about your studio?
My studio Is my nucleus. A place where my ideas are transformed into reality. The space is divided into multiple areas, much like divisions in the mind.
There’s exhibit space, design space, build space and many compartments for contemplation, conceptualization and visual stimulation.
What’s your favorite body of work?
Definitely the Moto Valkyrie’s.
