Inspiration: Chaos is a great inspiration. My studio looks like a hurricane hit with half-finished paintings and collages strewn everywhere. I get ideas from seeing the juxtaposition of visual ideas.”

Aesthetic: My style is all over the place. I go from geometric to landscapes to portraits.”

Reaction: “I find that people tend to see things in my work that even I am blind to. Everyone is a painting whisperer, so I try not to telegraph what I’m thinking.”

Styling Tip: I like geometric and minimalist work in modern houses. Metallic paintings are unusual and tend to get attention in a room. But with art, anything goes.”
