In a word, that’s what my artwork is about. (There’s enough sadness in the world, dammit.)
My daily art-making practice springs from an intentional cultivation of joy, embraces spontaneity, perfect imperfection and bold, unapologetic colors. Despite major life setbacks, I believe that joy can and will be present again.
Pet Portraits is one way I help make joy happen in other people's lives. Flowers, birds, inspiring quote prints spread joy, too.
Much of my work is done in gouache.
