What artist inspires you? Why?
I am a huge fan of the deceased western artist W. R. Leigh. I recently saw some rare paintings by him here in Arizona and the hot color, contrast, mood and amazing draftsmanship had me transfixed!
How do you come up with an idea for a new piece of artwork?
In the field with my photography..there has to be something in that particular experience that inspires me; usually it's the expression of the animals, light of the day and the color. Color really gets me going.
Where is the most inspirational place you've visited lately?
I recently visited Marfa, TX. A working artist's community in the middle of nowhere. Wonderful art amidst the wide open spaces of West Texas. I will go back again.
