Colorful and whimsical images express people from all walks of life in animated and contemplative moments. I hope that viewers will pause to consider what is behind the scene. In my artwork the subjects are often embellished with plants, flowers or placed in an indoor setting.

Some of the public collections that include my art are: The British Museum, Tokyo Central Museum, Panstwowe Museum in Poland; The House of Humor and Satire in Bulgaria, Cincinnati Art Museum, Cleveland Art Museum, Portland Art Museum, New York Public Library, The Library of Congress and The Smithsonians Museum of Asian Art.
