Artist Statement

I paint stories and moments in time using color and humor. My inspiration comes from people, how they move and how they interact with the world around them. How simple things can bring a smile. I paint the world inside of me, that world is happy, fun, joyful, integrated and includes what brings most people joy, their pets. My hope is when someone sees my paintings it triggers their imagination and they come up with a story about what they see. If I made you smile then my paintings are a success.
