A friend recently asked me if I am inspired by other artists’ work. Always. In fact, most of my close friends are artists and craftspeople, though few are painters. Lately, I am most inspired by three-dimensional artists; particularly those working in earthy materials such as clay, metal, wood and stone.

I am also deeply inspired by music. Guitar is my favorite instrument, and although I am partial to acoustic guitar compositions, I have an eclectic collection. Recently I stumbled upon Michigan artist Brandon McCoy, and I’ve been listening to his music for the past couple of weeks. I am particularly fond of ‘Luciole’, though it’s hard to choose a favorite.
