"I bleed in crayola crayon colors, I revel in caffeine, I rejoice that God has shared his creative soul with mankind so that we can make art. I can't help but paint and create and spread the joy. I started as a children's book illustrator and morphed into a 'more conventional' version of an artist for the sake of spreading the joy of color in a larger variety of images and forms. I'm easily inspired by books, toys, nature (especially outer space), fabric patterns, and mostly anything shiny."
