why stories?

“Sometimes you have to let go of the picture of what you thought life would be like and learn to find joy in the story you are actually living.” Rachel Marie Martin

I want my paintings to give you fabulous stories to tell.

Stories are what make us who we are. And everyone’s unique story matters. What does this have to do with art? Actually, I think it has a lot to do with art.

For centuries artists have used pigments and brushes, canvas and boards, to convey emotions that are sometimes too deep or profound to be explained in words. Art is an avenue to express where you are, to celebrate where you’ve been, and direct you to where you should be.

With every painting I desire to convey a deeper appreciation of the layers and processes of life that have made us who we are today. I want to celebrate it all, allowing the sum of what remains to tell the story of life.
