Every story tells a picture...My acrylic paintings in a Magical Realism style can be whimsical, mystical at times, or just simply there. Being a continual daydreamer, I am passionately attracted to fairy tales. The ideas of nature, romance, and chaos, and the notion of opposites, good vs.evil and ugly vs. beauty. There is always some sort of story (or hidden meaning) behind each painting in my mind. Sometimes it is difficult to put into words what the meaning of a piece is, but each painting is to speak for itself and have the viewer go away with his or her own thoughts about the piece. What the viewer thinks about my work is more important than the story she may give.
