‘My artistic process expresses my fear of threats and dangers of the outside world upon youth
while attempting to find within themselves the power to overcome harsh circumstances,
strength to cope with challenges and the courage to care. Illustrating inspirational young
characters among animal companions, spirits & mythical creatures with a connection to nature.
Creating scenes with a creepy, yet cute approach, where they emerge triumphant against – or flow in harmony with intimidating, isolating and dangerous backgrounds while simultaneously exploring the interconnectedness of life and death – as well as a need to connect with the wild or
“the unknown” – is essential to my work.’

Along with the Haiti efforts and miscellaneous natural disaster efforts, I had previously partnered in the past with TREES FOR THE FUTURE contributing a percentage of my proceeds to planting trees in developing countries.
