One thing I am most grateful for is that I made the decision to travel so much in my teens and twenties. Exploring countries on the other side of the world gave me a new perspective and makes me feel more connected to our earth and people everywhere. My art has been inspired by places I've visited, and I've realized that over the years, as my style of art has changed so much, some of this is due to traveling and being exposed to so many rich cultures, use of colors and patterns, fashion on different continents, and beauty--which takes many different forms, changing in each new cultural context. My next series is based on travel, and images that are inspiring me are from our most recent trip to Europe. In September of last year, we visited my brother Andre and his girlfriend Sophia, who live in Berlin, and while we were across the pond, we made sure to visit Paris, Prague, Salzburg and other parts of Germany, such as Freiburg, where our dear relatives live. This trip was very special, as it was long anticipated. I've studied European art my whole life, and yet, this was the first time I saw much of it in person.
