This collection has the feeling of fun and creative freedom. It is mixed media using bright, uplifting colors with no rules. I hope to bring back childhood memories in people when they visit.

I have had my hands in paint since I was young. Color and texture inspire me in everything I do. When music is added to the mix the ideas just fly onto my canvases. I like to combine contrasting colors and mediums to add an electric energy to my works.
I hope to continue to grow and evolve with every new painting I create.
