My goal is not to repeat reality but to recreate the feeling of joy. I take simple objects that represent moments in life and use color relationships to depict different moods. When you see joy in simple objects life is more enjoyable. In my art and life color is supreme. I usually implement warm reds oranges and yellows which radiate fun cozy humorous feelings and passion. Coffee cups represent people gathering and celebrating life together and flowers symbolize those dear to your heart and beautiful things everyone can enjoy. Often the feeling of joy is found in short moments between people building relationships. This is the meaning in my art and in my life.
