'Mia' (Played by Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction) from the very popular cult classic movie Pulp Fiction. I captured this iconic POP culture image from the movie on canvas using rich and bold oil paint. In my movie stills such as this one, I enjoy taking the image back to what would be a refined story board. This is easy to do with Quentin Tarantino's films as he so artistically shoots his films.
Art and the act of creating has always been of interest to me. As a young child I would spend my allowance on 'How to Draw" books sketch pads, pencils and pens. I was attracted to books and magazines with a sense of humor and satirical aspects such as MAD magazine, of which I collected. Digging through of box of childhood memories I happened upon the book "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs", it was then that I realized where my appeal for food based images came from. Like most artists, I started with graphite and paper and it wasn't until college that I started painting and I was hooked. I feel that to truly learn about oneself, one must simply look at the early chapters of life's book.
