Artist Message


Illustration is an extraordinary thing. It is a creative and exciting way to communicate to a wide range of audiences. It breaks cultural boundaries and language barriers. Images can go farther than words even can. In my opinion, visual language is the ultimate form of communication. If I can create an image that can effectively speak a particular idea to, or evoke a specific opinion, in another human being, I have done my job.

My body of work is my unique tool of communication. My images have a bold and colorful sensibility. Rich color usage is my main device to captivate the viewer to hold their attention until they consider what each individual piece has to say. I use striking color palettes to effectively demand attention.

I love the emphasis on texture that watercolor paints require. The texture of the chosen paper becomes an element in the image, and is a wonderful contrast to more flat and thick applications of paint. It reminds the viewer of its handmade origins, even after its print reproductions. A painterly quality is, in my opinion, irreplaceable.

Humor is an essential characteristic to my Illustration. Laughter is a critical element to my life, so why wouldn’t it be a main player in my work? Finding an amusing or sarcastic approach to an idea is always my favorite way to execute a piece. If I can make myself laugh while making it, I have reached some form of success. If you can’t laugh at yourself, then nothing is fun!
