My TD-bu art is about the big picture and details.  My paintings have an overall image or  feeling (Top Down)  with detailed micro patterns (Bottom Up).    I'm an intuitive painter.  I paint what I see in the world.  I paint what's important to me.   I don't do flowers.

I aim to create edgy, extreme in-your-face art.  At the moment I am doing the B Series- Boobs, Balls and Bums.  This series is a colorful journey into the past and present culture of our bodies and sexual cues.  There is something for everyone in these painting.  I like the edge.  I like the extreme.  I like confrontational ideas.

Yes, we are losing our beautiful animals.  We are killing them for inane reasons.  They will be gone one day.  These paintings are to remind us of the complexity, interconnectedness and impermanence of these sentient beings.  What will it take to stop the madness of auctioning off the body parts of our fellow species?  These paintings are heartbreaking, but serve as a reminder.
