I don't like paintings that are too realistic. I don't mind components that are not accurate, that surprise, that make you have to look twice and discover new things.

A world that I long to see

2015

For me this painting is  about the connection I long for between all living things. It saddens me so much to see how we are destroying our world and the habitat of these wonderful creatures that live with us on this planet. I hope some day the majority of people will realize that the earth is something precious and that our natural resources won't be there forever if we don't start taking care of things. 

Someday we'll stand in the sun

2015

In a way this painting represents hope for me. That things will get better, that people will come to their senses, that someday all people will indeed stand in the sun and embrace and accept each other's differences.
