“One could call my painting style naïve art with a pop art and  contemporary art influence. I like to create paintings that have a  simple design, tell a story and use a vivid color palette. I add heavy  texture using paint, 3D objects and other acrylic binders to bring depth  and complexity.

To date, I have completed nearly 50 paintings in my rooster and chicken series.

In 2012 newspaper article about “Collective Whimsy,” an art show I headlined, Miyai Abe Griggs, the executive director of The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho, was quoted as saying ‘Art doesn’t always have to be so serious. There’s nothing wrong with art that makes you smile.'”
