Creativity is My Passion!

As an oil painter, I focus my attention on the humble everyday objects that we can so easily overlook. I attempt to shed light upon the beauty of the food in our kitchen, the quiet flowers in a vase, and the charming reflections of a simple teapot. I also have an affectionate draw to the humorous and the whimsical. This theme can be seen scattered across my portfolio; cheeky rubber duckies, goldfish in light bulbs and anthropomorphized inanimate objects combined with smooth gradients that play with light and shadow create for a more interesting and fun piece of work. I normally don’t have a solid intention with my works, preferring to display things as they are, but in a different light. I do hope, however, that the simple fusion of humble beauty, tactile softness, and bright energy of these simple objects can bring a smile or even a bit of a chuckle to someone’s day.

Frequently asked questions
Do you do commissions or custom paintings?

Not at this time. Although I absolutely love working on special projects, I have been blessedly busy with running my Etsy Shop and my second passion of wildlife photography.
