I recently visited Paris for a special anniversary trip with my husband, Drew. It was my first time in France and it exceeded all of my expectations. Italy is (and always will be) our favorite, but we've tried to branch out into other countries like Greece (honeymoon) and now France.
Travel changes everything. Not just about my work, but how I see the world in general. I am inspired and fascinated with other cultures and places in history. I am obsessed with taking photos and gathering as much inspiration as I can. I am interested in textures, colors, landscape and nature -- plant life, earth and rocks. The rugged textures, urban places, graffiti, old walls and eroded paths. Images pass through my mind and influence my creation and choices in the studio.
Since returning home, I've been painting based on the memories of our trip. I will post a few photos of my inspiration to follow.
