'Inspiration for my paintings mostly comes from childhood memories, my imagination, and things that are important to me. Currently I’m working on a series of works that feature Martian-like characters posed in different yoga positions and painted in bright, bold colors. I fill the backgrounds with things like planetary objects, rainbows, flowers, and words that come to mind in the mid-stage of my painting. The Martian evolved from my imaginary friend from childhood (a character who looks very much like The Great Gazoo from the Flintstones). That character helped me through many difficult times as a child. I’m a beekeeper, and often include flowers and little monsters in my work. Yoga and meditation are my daily practice. Weaving all of these things together, my paintings become like this euphoric tapestry — an otherworldly, and magical place that I dream to be in. In my own little world, I take care of nature in a very Buddhist-like way; I especially love the tiniest creatures, and consider it bad luck to kill bugs.'
