'Some days you need to create your own sunshine.' This quote speaks to me of being proactive. I like to think of myself as proactive. I am not one to sit around waiting for someone to make me happy. I choose to fill my days with beauty. Even when dealing with serious life issues there are ways to create joy and sunshine.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
