Artist Statement: My paintings feature dreamlike scenes of whimsical people, animals, and landscapes and have a storybook quality to them. Symbols inspire me, because they compress complex ideas and philosophies into immediately accessible images. I love portraying the figure and seeing how many different ways it can fit into a fantastic scene.
Technique: I always use acrylic medium to thin the paint instead of water. This results in a beautiful, rich paint surface that is strong and archival.
