I create upbeat art which portrays animal and human subjects engaged in joyful and playful activities. My work is colorful, whimsical and sometimes funny. I believe art should make you smile! I wish for my art to convey a sense of hopefulness and joy. I experience so much pleasure from painting that it is my desire to pass a bit of this along to the viewer. I believe that art should be accessible to everyone; the visual and conceptual attributes of my work reflect this passion, as well as the cost options. I create art to share. When a piece of my art work brings a smile to someone as they pass by, I feel that I have been successful!
