Artist’s Statement

I find inspiration in making people smile.  I want my viewers to feel an inquisitive interest in the everyday, and find whimsy in unexpected places.  I want to capture a sense of joy and hopefulness in my brushstrokes.  The focus of my work ranges from the intrinsic beauty of nature, to imaginative characters, to environmental consciousness and food justice; but even with this wide range of subject matter, I instill a playfulness that can always be enjoyed by the child at heart.  My work displays a very precise and considered rhetoric that allows my audience to find beauty and meaning on multiple levels of observation.  Whether it is through detailed illustrations, commissioned paintings, or community art lessons, I can allow my viewer to reflect on a curious and wonderful world.
