I’ve been an artist since I can remember. I was sewing by hand since age 5. I always had a passion for history, art and a love for the history of fashion.
My family. Our home was filled with music and contemporary art. My mother was beautiful and obsessed with fashion. My grandmother was a free spirit who loved me and supported my talent. My wife, Debra, pushed me and believed in me. My daughter, Veronica, is my muse and a mini me.
Of course! I am first generation American – my family comes from England and Ireland, so the old world and traditions run through my veins and into my art.
Tim Gunn and Cary Grant.
I use a quick hand-sketch technique.
