The themes in my work are light-hearted and good-natured, whether or not the theme of an art work has been proposed for me or whether I have chosen it myself. My motto is “Don’t worry; be happy” and it always seems to be present in my artwork. The subjects in these particular pieces reflect this, while they pursue their tiny adventures.
The audience’s encounter with my work should also be a positive one. The awkward humor and mood is meant to commute from my art to the audience. I identify my art as contemporary since I feel that it has come to embrace my art and take it under its wing. It seems to flourish with the open-mindedness and freedom that it has to offer.
