Learning From My Audience

After months of preparing for stARTup Art Fair, my biggest show to-date, to share my work with so many new people was extremely fulfilling. And I learned a lot!

I found out that some of my paintings remind people of Richard Diebenkorn,Charles Sheeler and Wayne Theibaud's urban landscapes. Others found my work more akin to some photographers like Lauren Marsolier and Sinziana Velicescu, not because my work is photorealistic (it's not, although I do work from photos that I take), but because of my use of light and shadow. The Southern California light is very specific and has certainly affected my style - in a good way, I think!

All this feedback is incredibly inspiring, I can't wait to see what I come up with next. 

Thank you for supporting the arts and my journey, and please let me know what you think of my new work. If you're in LA, email me to schedule a studio visit.
