The Artist Says:

Color outside of lines and use big crayons. Sometimes rub with fingers.

Collectors Say:

What happy colors.

Dealers Say:

Your always so sweet.

Other Artists Say:

Thank you for all the help, I couldn't have done it without you and your support.


I create my own world fueled by some inner passion of brave optimism and confidence. I chose to make art for a living not as a hobby. I want my art to be seductive with color and movement. I like to push a subject and embrace its most intriguing features. As a series evolves it begins to have its own voice. It will call to me again and again and I will revisit the subject and paint it yet another way.
Everything interests me, the why, the how, the trivia of it. The blank canvas is my opportunity to take my fascination with the things that surround me and use that energy to create my strongest subjects.
