“I love the intersection between nature, fantasy, science, and spirit. My creations are often surrealist and therefore odd or challenging, but possibly unlike the famous works of artists like Dali and Kahlo, I want my work to also feel friendly, accessible and visually welcoming.”
My Philosophy of Art
Until it is viewed, art is incomplete. Art is alchemy - the relationship between the artist and each viewer. I often learn about my own artwork from strangers as they describe what they see.
Each art piece is like a child I've birthed - unique in personality yet reflective of something deep within me. And like the Mother of a child, I seek to push it gently into the world with the hopes of it being well-received, understood, challenged, and ultimately cherished and integrated into someone else's life.
