Hopper Prize Journal Interview

I always appreciate it when folks want to sit down and ask me more about my studio process and this crazy life I lead. I am excited to share the latest iteration of one of these sessions. Last year I was awarded the Hopper Prize and this year they reached out to do a little interview.

In this interview, among other things I pay my respects to Dr Brooks (who had a major influence on me becoming an artist), I  talk about what I do when paint is drying and how I use my phone as a tool in my studio. I hope you find this insightful and please feel free to reach out if you would like to have a conversation or to further this one.

Here’s a little snippet:

“I usually arrive and unpack any books or new music that I bring to the studio, pro tip I like to bring new episodes of podcasts or albums to the studio as a sort of extra incentive. I settle in and begin with some warm up drawing. I usually have a couple of different exercises to get focussed but sometimes this is just time to look at and work up some new ideas in my sketchbook. Then I move on to making in earnest….”

Please click here for the full interview.

As always, I appreciate your support. It means the world to me.
