How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"I usually start my paintings from the back to the front, meaning that I create a "ground" or environment first (considering the landscape, the time of day, the environment and what that temperature might be). I use big brushes first, and I limit my time with the piece, so that the ground feels fresh and alive. Then I work on top of this, adding layers of detail and ingredients to attract the eye. I can use a HUGE brush to start the work and end with a "triple 000" brush to paint eyelashes or tiny pearls. Also, I never have an idea of what my painting is going to be when I begin working on it. I work as if I am making a collage, adding parts bit by bit."
