Since I was a child, I've always loved books and movies that create fantastic worlds unseen. The sparkle and shine of the mythical characters. Imagination and a preference for bright colors and bold, swirling shapes dictate my art. I don’t go into a painting with a plan. It just happens on its own. I may start with a specific color as a background, but the pieces just emerge. Each step of the process inspires the next. After I have the main structure of the painting, I like to add tidbits of detail into the spaces. From 10 feet away, you may see a rock in the water. From 2 feet away, you see it's actually a dolphin. Those details are like tiny little presents for those who take that extra second to look.
