Artist Statement


As I sit on my paint covered stool, I stare at a blank canvas and wonder what story it will tell. As the author of this story, I want to create a work that allows me to get swept away in a positive narrative that conveys happiness and encourages a sense of joy and reckless abandon. As the paint begins to flow and the colors dance across the canvas,

I am free…free of worry or care.

By combining bright, vibrant, full bodied color, elements of nature, and a dash of whimsy, I paint stories that wake my inner child and bring my imagination to life. Every canvas is a story…optimistic and positive, spontaneous and free.
