My Happy Place

‘My Happy Place’ is a collection of paintings. They all examine the places that art can take us. It can be a color, an experience, an imaginary place, memory of a place; a place in our dreams, or a real one. I wanted to create the world I enjoy and encourage others to join.


I start by building texture with a variety of materials on canvas. Then, I keep adding layers of colors until I see the right composition. I use a lot of water with pigment. The water can reach all the small cracks to enhance the texture and the colors underneath.
