I would describe my paintings as eclectic because I am always learning and experimenting with shapes and colors depending on the mood (sometimes contradictory) or the theme I might be working on. The images are a blend of the natural world and imaginary creatures. Some of my paintings have a subtle message but most do not. I hope each viewer will enter the work and share in the storytelling.
