Each painting hints at a story of self-realization and gently pokes fun at our pre-conceived notions of reality and the extraordinary. Many of his paintings will incorporate non-human subjects in order to emphasize the actions, emotions, and fallibilities found in the human condition.
I paint because it makes me happy and I want others to experience this joy. When I see someone smile while viewing my art, and I know we are sharing a common experience, there are no words to describe this feeling. It is a communication that words are not able to convey. I can create art for myself, but it is simply incomplete until I can make someone else happy in the process.
His paintings portray a crisp and colorful world, alive with nostalgia, splendor, playfulness and whimsy. By taking everyday objects and imagery and putting them in a new context, he encourages people to take another look at the world around them. After all, our everyday lives are filled with wonder, beauty, and magic, if only we allow our eyes to see it.
