ARTIST STATEMENT:

“I am so excited to see Tulsa bloom and grow, especially the downtown area.  It’s exciting to be a part of the growth and development of Tulsa and to put ideas into place for future generations to enjoy. We are on the cusp of becoming a big city, and I love to capture the joy of Tulsa in my paintings.  I love to use bold colors and hope that people walk away from viewing my artwork with a smile on their face.  Life can be tough enough with its challenges…I want my art to inspire people and make them happy.”
