Artist Statement

I am striving to create a world that sparks the imagination. I have deliberately broken the rules of perspective to free the viewer’s mind into a state of wonder. In this way, I’m breaking the boundaries of the imagination, not merely bending them, making the impossible seem a little more likely.
My inspiration, comes in many forms, from the every day familiar, to the whimsical fairytales I've read to my children over the years. I've also found inspiration in the cartoons I remember watching as a child, and still watch today with my four children. Through my art, I am inviting children into the art world, with images that invoke them as well as the child in us all. Enjoy my imagionary world!
