I paint because I strive to create something unique and share it with others. While my work may not be aiming to make a specific, bold statement, I wold like to think that it creates thought through imagination and child-like sense of happiness and wonder. In our current political climate, I know there is a lot of tension, and a lot to be fighting for, but sometimes I think it's nice to have art that is a reminder of the happiness we all once felt, perhaps as a child, the hope that is to come. I want to create art that you can look at and it makes you feel cheery because it's interesting and beautiful. I like to create abstract designs that force people to decipher the meanings for themselves, and hopefully they feel some positivity radiating through.
