My paintings are surrealistic and dream realm based. I believe in magic and the unseen forces at work behind the scene in life . I take everyday scenes from nature and transform them into whimsical adventures with playful sometimes ominous animal creatures. I believe we humans have much to learn from animals.
Rabbits have a lot of different meanings and carry rich symbolism for many different cultures.
In addition to their more common meanings of fertility, abundance and good fortune, they symbolized being fearless. They remind me to not allow my fears or anxiety to control me and keep me limited to safe areas.
My hope and intent is to reconnect the viewer with their sense of child-like wonder, to revisit belief in magic and the power of our imagination like when we were children. Life is what we create it to be. I hope to create a moment where the stress and mundane details of everyday life are forgotten and one can escape into these adventurous places with my bunnies and I.
