What artist inspires you? Why?
Andrew Loomis is my drawing inspiration. His drawings have a life and language all their own. He suggests, instead of overdoing his drawings. I constantly try to simplify my work while still using some detail.
How do you come up with an idea for a new piece of artwork?
My ideas lately have come from the many foreign trips I've taken with my husband. I also live in a rural location and am constantly inspired by the animals and people that live around me.
Where is the most inspirational place you've visited lately?
Recently I had the pleasure of travelling to South Africa. (We plan to return again in 2014.) It is the most beautiful place. I love animals, and African animals are exquisite subjects to draw and paint.
