My strong passion for travel is an integral source of inspiration in my work. I'm a firm believer that new sights and experiences fill the mind with new ideas and tempts the artist to stretch boundaries. Through the discovery of the unknown, creative sparks ignite, awareness is heightened, and the imagination is refreshed. My recent road trip to Portland, Maine was no exception. Between the impressive blend of old and new signage, vintage typography, gorgeous storefronts, and historic architecture, it was visually exhilarating. The endless amount of lobster rolls and fresh seafood paired with a fine selection of craft breweries were just an added bonus!

As a side trip, I ventured off to Monhegan Island, a tiny island 10 miles off-shore. It's a rocky island, barely a square mile in area that is accessible only by boat. There are no cars or paved roads on the island, and it's year-round population is only around 65. Monhegan Island is an absolutely magical place, and is a summer escape for artists and other visitors who appreciate it's isolation, hiking it's spectacular wilderness areas, and it's quiet relaxed atmosphere. It is the perfect place to unplug and disconnect from the busy world.
