If you could shadow one person dead or alive for a day, who would it be?
What's a typical day look like for you?
I am most productive in the morning. Ideally, I like to start painting as soon as I can from the moment I wake up.
What's your philosophy on art?
Are there any key elements or mediums you carry throughout your art?
Nature, I paint my interpretation and feelings of nature.
I think one of the most under praised museums is the Palm Springs Art Museum. They have a beautifully curated small collection of color field painters I love like Helen Frankenthaler. The collection and colours speaks to Palm Springs and the sun.

Most surreal life experience to date?
Robert Redford being my first patron. When I was nine he saw my painting of a Tucan hanging in a coffee shop. He bought it and used it in the film he was directing The Horse Whisperer. My parents and I got to go on set and chat with him.
