My mission as an artist is to remind people to make themselves happy.  We're often too busy, or don't know how to make that happen, waiting instead for something good to come along.  We can take control and celebrate our daily accomplishments, maintain social connections, perform acts of kindness, make time for activities that bring us joy, be totally absorbed in an activity, take care of our health and replace negative thoughts with positive ones. 

These seven actions can increase your satisfaction and sense of well-being.  It's a little hard to remember all those things, but a beautiful piece of art can remind you to take charge of your happiness and spread joy just by being you.

The art in this website may be whimsical or sophisticated, mysterious or playful, but the emphasis is on lightheartedness and appreciating the good in our lives.
