Exploration – it’s the thing that drives me to paint every day.  So I find it kind of funny that my work is done best when spending hours cozied up in the home!


Snuggled up at the bay window with a cup of coffee, I start my mornings by diving into a painting.  By the time the sun has warmed up my room and the coffee has grown cold, I open up the window and breath in some fresh air.  I grab a bowl of breakfast – usually Greek yogurt smothered in cinnamon and something fruity and nutty – and hop back to work.


I definitely don’t paint as much as I would like to, but it is this routine that keeps me up to practice and developing my ability to express myself as a painter.  Here I remind myself, exploring is wonderful, but self-exploration has great value, and can be done anywhere!
