Object you keep around your studio for inspiration: “Two original drawings and a photograph of my grandpa, Al Farnsworth. He was an architect, and from what I understand, the drawings were done when he was a student. In the picture he was around my age, and drawing at his drafting table set against a wall of windows. I went to architecture school for a bit and then moved on, but I have a lot of interest in architecture. I appreciate that he lived an artistically based life. He turned me onto Frank Lloyd Wright (his favorite) when I was young. We lived in Arizona and he’d visit Taliesin West when he came to see us. I feel like I’m carrying something forward that guided my grandpa too. I’ve often imagined building the house in his drawings.”
