Artist Statement

Happy is a feeling of joy, pleasure, or good fortune. I am a strong believer that you should strive to do what makes you happy. Happiness doesn’t just come to you. You can make changes in your life that will put you on a path to a happier life.

In March 2020 when we found out we would be stuck at home, rather than letting boredom take over, I got creative. I decided to do something I had been wanting to do for a while, but couldn’t find the time. My first at-home activity was to paint. That feeling of joy and pleasure is what I experienced when painting and still do today.

I love to create art that makes others smile, and that is the true meaning behind my "Choose Happy" Collection. As my first ever art capsule collection I created this with the idea that happiness is contagious. When you look at these happy faces, my hope is that it makes you smile and think positive thoughts. That optimism can be infectious, and you should spread it onto others.
