“Children never cease to fascinate me, and I adore their sense of wonder in discovering the world around them. Our youth see life with fresh eyes, and remind me to notice the textures, colors, and beauty we often take for granted as we age. My paintings are a place to reminisce what it was once like to be untethered.”
