Andy Warhol- My Art Crush

My fascination with Andy Warhol started in my youth. I was intrigued with this fragile looking artist that created a new medium and had his own posse of friends that surrounded his ever action.

Shirin Neshat- Hirshhorn Museum-Washington, DC

Turquoise interpreted by David Webb

I am obsessed with turquoise and David Webb Jewels. Turquoise because it is a soothing stone and David Webb jewels because this iconic American brand is over the top glamorous. These pieces are expensive but like pieces of art that one can look at & cherish. The three bracelets pictured are some of my favorites mixing turquoise, diamonds, tiger-eye, enamel …

I first heard the music of the group MASSIVE ATTACK while on business travel to Asia. The English band was formed in Bristol in 1988 and has an alternative/esoteric musical style.
