With 2400+ artists in the ArtistADay archives, they realized that it can be daunting to find your favorites. To help, they partnered with artists, gallery owners, collectors and curators by asking them to share their top five favorite artists on the site. I’m a big fan of ArtistADay and was honored when they asked me to contribute a collection.

I sink into a deep depression.
No, just kidding. What I do is I take a break.
One of my favorite painters, Andrew Wyeth, said:
That sentiment is very true for me as well. So I lay down and relax my mind and body as much as I can, letting my thoughts wander and do what they will while lightly holding the intent of creation. I find that when I’m relaxed it makes it easier for stuff in the subconscious to bubble up to the surface. And when it does surface, I make sure to write or sketch the ideas down. Works just about every time!

I recently completed a Q&A with the edgy new independent cultural magazine LIVE FAST. The mag features fashion and style profiles, interviews with rising artists, classy conversation about sex, and beautifully illustrated travel stories (this is definitely THE site to follow). In a candid interview with Abby from LIVE FAST, I talk about my muses, my process, music I love, my personal style, and what makes me tick.
Here’s an excerpt:

That’s the slogan for “hDL” – Home Design & Life Style – a high-end magazine that features the latest trends in fashion, design, lifestyle, and art (the last issue showed off artwork from the incredible Tamara Muller!). My painting, Pele, made it on the cover of their latest issue – my first magazine cover!
The publication is from Israel and when the production manager, Gil, sent me a copy, I expected that it would be in Hebrew but it was still a little surprising to open the cover on the left side (the issue reads right to left)! There is an awesome spread with some of my older work and I completed an interview which you can read in English here. I’m not quite sure what was said about me. All I know are the questions that were given and answered so if anyone knows Hebrew, please let me know what they are saying!

AND I know that I’m a little late in posting this since we’re nearing the end of summer but I’d still like to share… I’ve been selected as the artist of the month for the summer issue of Curry’s ArtWise, a really great e-publication/newsletter from Curry’s Art Store located in Ontario, Canada. The issue includes four paintings – Pele, Girl and the Owl, Going West, and Auburn – and I offer my personal thoughts and inspirations behind each piece.
