I'm interested in a wide range of media and art forms, and I'm always open
to new ideas. I think many times artists corner themselves into one discipline
which may limit the potential of their projects.
Several artists were instrumental in shaping my views on life and art, and I
draw inspiration for my work from these artists and often from nature as well. The specific drivers of my creativity are too many to name and in many cases may not even be known.
This print is based off a sketch that my grandfather Thomas F. Chouteau and I made
when I was 4 years old. This interior design is almost exactly replicates the
doodle he and I made in which I drew the shape, and he filled in the details
and accents. In the print, I added the color scheme and the background giving
the idea a stronger manifestation.
