I’m drawn to graphic shapes, black and white, and colorful abstracts. I’m a huge fan of Abstract Expression, Cubist, Surrealist & Contemporary art. Choosing art for your home can be difficult, but I follow one rule: only buy art you love. For interiors, I gravitate toward ultramodern, contemporary, and mid-century modern. However, I advocate surrounding yourself with things you love rather than fitting into a category. I mesh things together that don’t always "match." Unexpected is interesting.
