Unless you live in a cushy happy bubble, life is politically, environmentally, physically, financially and tragically challenging these days. It can be rapid fire information chaos yet, like a gore car crash, I can't turn away so I deal with it the best way I know how and paint. I hope my images draw you in to evoke reflection, conversation, and political action. My goal is to encourage viewers of my work to stay awake, stay informed, be proactive and vote. These are strange times. Painting has always been my vehicle for creating upbeat, whimsical images that carry joy to their newly adopted homes but life has changed and I have to acknowledge that. My paintings deal with the mess we have created for ourselves.
Stay informed, listen to your heart and know that without journalism, it's just propaganda.
