Painting has always been a big part of my life. I grew up with an artist mother who used art to provide entertainment for her children. I remember sitting at a big table for hours with my siblings making all sorts of things.

My acrylic and oil paintings tend to be whimsical and are inspired by places I’ve been, places I want to go and sometimes feature characters (usually my kitties). My art style has been described as animative or illustrative, as I love to paint real life places or situations and make them seem like they come from a story.
