I am an oil painter with a passion to paint people. I get my ideas from observing people, reading, listening and experiencing life in all its many forms. I want my art to help people think about how their own lives can change, or to reinforce their own values. I think our little world has daily injury and most of us can only do small things to offset this. This is my way to make our world a more harmonious place. Through my art, I try to develop a story of strength, love, and inspiration which shows simple pleasures that make life easier and more joyful. My whimsical paintings are used to express a simple metaphor which makes a statement about every day life.
