The most surprising thing I’ve discovered about collectors is: They can be anybody!
My most unorthodox source of inspiration is: Lately, it’s nature. I tend to draw color inspiration from landscapes while traveling, such as deep moody colors on a gray autumn day. I often take photos while hiking or traveling that inspire me later on in my studio.
The one piece of advice I would give people who want to start collecting art is: Collect artwork that you connect to personally — that inspires you and touching something in your heart.
