I get my inspiration for my work from my daily commute to NYC. On each subway ride I take notice of each and every person. I see every detail as the unassuming commuter is looking at their phone at people and places that are not near them. But back in the subway car I am paying close attention.

I work with a large collection of custom underglaze image transfers of the drawings I make from the people I see. My goal is to have hundreds of people to choose from to reflect the diversity of not just NYC, but the world.
