About My Art

When I’m painting, I think about the kinds of  messages I want around me, and put them into my work. From a young age I decided to approach life with a positive attitude. I want my world to be a place that is uplifting, encouraging and playful, so I mostly use simple shapes and bright colors.

I love to paint on reclaimed materials, finding a way to re-use things that might otherwise be thrown away. Besides painting on regular canvases and panels, I paint on old windows, vintage wood, and metal.

I did not always paint robots, but on impulse some years ago I added a small cartoon robot to a painting, and now robots have completely taken over my artwork.
