“A lot of paint and a little OCD go a long way”

Painting Rosie the Pig

I’m a self taught artist inspired by color, henna tattoos, Moroccan Zillij tile work, mandalas, and patterns of all kinds. I specialize in detailed mandala/kaleidoscopic images. Although I’ve been doodling, crafting, and dabbling in art since I could first hold a crayon, I didn’t start to show my work publicly until I applied to paint, of all things, a giant 4 foot tall fiberglass pig as part of Hanover, New Hampshire’s 250th Anniversary celebration. I parlayed the momentum, recognition, and praise from that piece into confidence to try and show my other pieces. The rest, as they say, is history.
