My current series of paintings are what I describe as narrative still lifes. Utilizing elements from my childhood--specifically candy and toys--I create mini-stories through a single image, the storytelling is as integral as the visual technique. What began as a way to make myself laugh, has quickly become an opportunity to share that humor and those laughs with others. Half of the fun for me is coming up with the stories. One of the intentions in my work is to soften the seriousness behind art and art making, infusing it with fun and a solid craft. It delights me to be able to make artwork that inspires playfulness and share it with others, to express silliness with a refined technique. My hope is that my art inspires all people to stay connected to their inner child and continue to play.
