ARTIST STATEMENT

  • when i am not painting i am illustrating and writing children’s stories  – though my styles vary somewhat, i am told my work all has a touch of the whimsy, and am influenced by many artists i love including chagall, miro, klee, monet, van gough, bonnard, and many children’s FINE art pieces-
