As an Art Director & Fine Artist I am inspired everyday by the world around us. News in art, science, nature and society fuel my passion to create innovative ideas and concepts. Always having a sketchbook handy I jot down notes and drawings, wherever I am and later translate that into creative designs, concepts and paintings that challenge the boundaries of the status quo.
