I am an Arlington, Virginia based artist and animal lover. I draw from a variety of inspirations, including traditional Asian art, children’s cartoons, and nature/wildlife. Elements often featured in my work are a palette of bright colors, bold outlines, simple compositions, and patterned or textured backgrounds. I hope my paintings are cheerful, optimistic, and fun while also promoting causes I care about, including conservation and animal welfare. I am a resident artist at Palette 22, a member of Del Ray Artisans, and an Artist Partner with the International Rhino Foundation.
