My paintings portray personal stories, surreal dreams, fantasies and landscapes. Frequently, I use animals and plants, particularly my own animals in my work. They lend each piece a feeling of intimacy and mystery.

I use vivid colors and rich details of my subjects in the hope of enticing the viewer into the painting to discover and relish the beauty they posses.

Presently, it is my intention to provide the viewer with a respite from the violent imagery that is present in our daily lives, so one may enter a quiet, richly colored world in a moment of intense beauty.
