ARTIST STATEMENT

       I am a watercolor artist who loves color, humor and off the wall silliness.
My artwork is inspired from what I imagine or experience and I really enjoy using animals as subjects involved in entertaining situations. I have two distinct styles of painting, I paint pretty and I paint pretty funny. I paint pretty when I have doubts about my artistic ability and usually while I am trying to prove to myself that I really can paint, I am dreaming up how to illustrate the next humorous scenario. 
      I love to laugh, I love to paint what makes me laugh, I truly love to share what makes me laugh with others and if I can give the gift of at least a smile, then I have done my job well
