When I lived in Paris, France, I was very taken with Belleville, which was a melting pot of so many cultures. I found myself speaking both French and Chinese in one shop around the corner. It felt so very universal and familiar.
What I love most about where I lived and visited was how the cultures were reflected in the artwork and design locally and historically. It seeped into my very being, and the art you see here, is the influence of Laos, Kiev, Thailand, Borneo, Paris, Croatia, Florence, Moscow, Siberia, Vietnam, and many more. I grew up knowing I would be an artist and took mental and literal notes and sketches of everything that inspired me. I became an expert in the markets and grew a keen eye for the unique and beautiful.
