What is your occupation?
I work part time in the Museum Store and on-call in the Koret Visitor Education Center at SFMOMA.
What’s your favorite tool? Why?
My favorite tool is a pencil. Writing down ideas and sketching.
How many breaks do you take when you’re working on a piece? What do you do on your breaks?
When I am painting, I like to relax and I usually have my TV on in the background which means I take breaks to catch up on my favorite shows.
When I screen-print I don’t like to take many breaks. For the most part I stay in it for the long haul, mainly because I don’t want my screens to dry.
Have you ever accidentally ruined one of your works by dropping/spilling/ripping?
We all have our moments of carelessness, but I usually try to have “clean hands” when I’m working.
What is the most surprising or unusual aspect of your process?
The most surprising aspect of my process is that I start off with a title and then I work from there.
Has working at SFMOMA influenced your work in any way?
I think it does influence my work, not in a lot of ways but in the little things that happen throughout the work day. Such as, interactions with people and observing the awkward things tourist do and say.
