Artist Statement

I aim to create forcefully joyous paintings that can't be ignored.

These are bold, loud, opinionated works of optimism that grow out of my passionate desire to drown out the negativity and darkness and absurd bullying that are heaped on us at an everincreasing rate and ear-splitting volume.

With color, paint and bold brush strokes, I want to trample darkness with Love. Joy. Optimism and Happiness. My paintings are a dare to overtake the forces that repress us and to rise up and dominate with positivity.

Every painting and every color choice is a bold statement, telling the world that I am not neutral: I side with inclusivity, diversity and love.
