I’m exploring, learning, and layering my findings on canvas. It’s a great challenge to paint and I am having fun with it. That is what this is about for me.I’m a visual artist. Mixing ordinary, everyday objects in unusual settings is my job. Oil paint, pencil, canvas and paper are my tools. My job is awesome. There is a combination or coincidence and connection in my work that incorporates humor and personality and pink. Yes, pink.
