I am an observer of people, cultures, and behaviors. I am intrigued by how different they all are. I enjoy long conversations and discussions on psychology, anthropology, and science with a few glasses of wine or champagne thrown in. What we hold dear, our moral code, things we allow to control us, things we will not is what I am drawn to. How are we all so different and what makes us tick? These are questions that humans have asked for centuries. I like it when I get a physical reaction from people when they view my art. The whimsical, fun, and sometimes political nature of life is evident in my work. By expressing the fierceness of a female, the ridiculous in a scenario, the message turns into humour to soften the blow, breaking down barriers to acceptance. The expressionist nature of my work tries to blur the edges of reality and hopefully spurs conversation and makes people smile, wonder, and think.
