Artist Statement:

I am by nature inquisitive and sensitive. My artwork is an expression of that which captures my curiosity. Often my subjects are cute, quirky and romantic in unusual ways. Viewers can catch glimpses of my everyday life through my pieces. I seek out the flaws in the mundane and embrace the chaos of everyday life. Simultaneously, I find inspiration in places where I feel comfort and safety.
Although animals frequently appear in my paintings, they coexist with objects such as furniture and laundry. Notably, the cats are connoisseurs of comfort. They know where they feel safe, and that's where I feel I capture them at their best.
I paint what I love.
