Several years ago I stained this wood panel with diluted blue gouache, and as a result to poor storage it cracked down the middle. I was pretty bummed when it happened, but I sat on it for another year until suddenly I was inspired by that crack. We all have moments in life where we feel stuck in the middle of something. When your mind is telling you one thing, but your heart says another. Every now and then those two things come together in full circle, and brings you that AHA moment!!

The flower of life is you, your soul, your energy. Heavily guarded with love, intuition, ambition, and balance, you will rise above the chaos and darkness that life can present. Know too, that even in darkness light can exist. Be true to yourself, follow your dreams, and catch every moment in life as it comes your way.

This piece is based off a photo I took of my other half with a cat we rescued from her family's Kentucky farm. This cat came to be known as Krusty. Abandoned as a kitten, Krusty wasn't really "farm cat" material and struggled to fend for himself. He stole our hearts and wound up coming home with us one cold November night. This rustic barn wood frame I found was the perfect final touch for displaying this moment of my life.

This piece was based off a photo I took of a farm cat we called Little Boy Blue. Unfortunately, Blue's spunky farm life was cut short by an irresponsible driver. His memory lives on at the farm, as well as in this piece of artwork.

The huntress of our subconscience, she preys on our nightmares and deflects the drunkeness of low vibrational energy.
Fish Eyed Future

Sometimes what seems beautiful at first glance, is actually ominous and ugly in the underlying depths of reality.

Another painting of mine based off an original photo. This is Katie Kat, she belonged to my grandparents. She was 21 years old and passed away a few months after I took her photo, and shortly before my Grandpa followed her to the next life. This piece originally represented a darkness in my recurring dreams, but as it came to be finished it aqcuired a new deep sentiment to my coping with the cycle of life.

A tribute in memorial to The Artist, Prince Rodgers Nelson. No true artist will let anyone or anything stop them from producing their vision. It is a right of passage for the creative mind, so embrace every moment of who you are and never stop creating.

A comissioned pet portrait I did for a client who's favorite movie is Rosemary's Baby. I just so happened to own a vintage baby carriage that became to perfect prop to reference. Reasons why artists collect strange things.
