Duration:All my life, but professionally, about two years.
Staff: Just me.
Education: Various, mostly self-taught, though I learned a lot about business from my father. I have a BFA in conceptual information arts and photography from San Francisco State University, and attended the California College of the Arts.
Cultural Influences: Luxury and elegance, French Victorian, genres, eras, icons, solid gold, classic contemporary, femininity, textile patterns, pin-ups, color combinations, Si Scott, Deanne Cheuk, Andy Warhol, Baroque furniture, old magazines, vintage postcards, Wild America, friends, family, love, lust, ornamental embellishments, decorative text and romance.
Environment: I've always shared a studio space with other friends and artists, but I'm about to move into a studio by myself, with lots of room to think, good space and good light. These things are really important to me right now...Though I also like interaction, so we'll see. I'm excited though (I'm always really excited).
Philosophy: Smoke Diamond, Glass of Red, Famous Royalty, Vicious Love, Liberty Cash, Venomous, Dawn after Dawn, Kiss Goodbye, Hurry Home and Never Stop.
