"Everything inspires me! It can be a gesture, an expression, or a perfect imperfection. It can be the way a piece of clothing translates into body language, the way a ray of light hits a surface, the sound of a word, or a piece of music—I love music. My senses, somehow, connect the dots and communicate directly to my hand. I think that’s why my work is the most spontaneous and effortless. Sometimes, I get surprised by what I’m drawing and I like that. It's like whatever I'm drawing is channeled from within me. I always want my drawings to feel lighthearted, relatable and warm.
Through my many years of being a fashion illustrator, working with some really great brands like Henri Bendel whom I worked with for over 20 years, I realized how my work makes high luxury into something familiar and approachable, while still being aspirational. That’s how I see my work. Whatever the project - for licensing it could be a notebook, a scarf, a t-shirt, luggage or even dinnerware, I like to help brands make high-quality products that are desirable and unique yet truly ownable. For me, this is where art and commerce meet".
