Statement: "My paintings feature dreamlike scenes of whimsical people, animals, and landscapes, and have a storybook quality to them. Symbols inspire me, because they compress complex ideas and philosophies into immediately accessible images. I love portraying figures and animals, and seeing how many different ways they can fit into a fantastic scene."
Background: Full time artist from Austin, Texas, USA. World travels have had a profound influence on my work in terms of imagery, technique, and inspiration. Other art and mediums I've done: clay, illustration, and watercolor.
Acrylic technique: I always use acrylic medium to thin the paint instead of water. This results in a beautiful, rich paint surface that is strong and archival. Paintings are sealed and varnished upon completion.
