Urban landscapes from my hood. Inspired by bumpy bike rides over cobbled streets.

I became a little obsessed with the incredible artistry of Parisian pastries and decided to do a series on food. I just wanted them to last longer than they do.

It’s not easy to paint on a boat, but it’s worth it. The colors on the water are insane. I had to buy new pastels when I got home to make more.

Spent time here and in the Loire Valley. When I wasn’t tasting the best white wines in the world, I was out in the fields. Most of my work is done on a colored sanded ground.
