I would like for people to see my work and take something away from it, whether it's a new idea or a new perspective. My current inspirations include Impressionist and Nouveau art, Art Deco, cartoons, manga, and comic books. Topics that usually pop up in my work are gourmet, animals, fantasy, etc. I hope you enjoy my gallery. :)
