Which artist/what artwork did you grow up admiring?
The four artists I admire most are Giorgio De Chirico, James Ensor, Edward Hopper, and Charles Burchfield.
What is the most challenging aspect of your creative process?
My paintings primarily explore trauma and healing. I am uninhibited when I create a painting. The work flows. The most challenging aspect is to verbally articulate what I am doing and why.
What does your creative space look like?
It has an abundance of natural light and is rather stripped-down. The clean space allows me to focus. There’s a painted-up drop cloth on the wall behind my easel. I find it oddly soothing! It sets the mood.
Who is your biggest artistic supporter?
Award-winning author Christopher Conlon has been a huge inspiration. We discovered each other’s work online and created “The Bucciano/Conlon Project.” He wrote short stories that were inspired by my paintings, and I created paintings based on his stories.
