Where did you grow up and how has this influenced your art?
I grew up in the city of Mesa, Arizona. The desert skies where I lived are spectacular. Massive cloud formations and a huge range of colours at sunrise and sunset. It instilled a great love of clouds and you can see that in my work
What, outside of art, has most influenced your artwork?
Probably my love of fantasy and mythology. I grew up reading the mythologies from many different cultures. My parents had a great series of books that went into Celtic, Nordic, Greek, Egyptian and Japanese myths. Those stories have stuck with me and still inform my creativity.
