Q : Where do you draw inspiration from? Who are your biggest artistic influences?

One question I almost never get directly is Why do you paint? It's certainly something I think about a lot, but it doesn't normally get asked in the same way that a question like, what's your favorite medium or how long does a painting take?

I loved the forms I found in this piece and have begun to incorporate it in new works,
