I dream tropical dreams. I dream them all year round!
Don’t you just love to swim free in the ocean, sit in the warm sun, see lush green plants all around, and have the freedom to be outside all day, or all night. I do! I guess that’s why I like to paint tropical paintings.
Because Summer is a happy place, and because I'm a colorist I look for ways to express all of that colour inside of me. Sounds kind of like I’m about to read your fortune doesn’t it! But I think you know what I mean. A lot of people express their mood with colour when they get dressed every day. Who doesn't love to see bright beautiful people expressing their colourful personalities. I do!
Personally I’m what’s known as a penguin. I only wear black and white, or if you are lucky cream, navy, or red. I like to sit in white rooms too. I like to express all my colors, all the colors that I feel inside on the canvas or with a brush, pencil, or any way that is creative.
This new body of work is inspired by a summer paradise, and all of it’s beautiful creatures.
