I am particularly interested in projects for younger audiences, especially children. I enjoy working with children because no dream is too big; they have the least fear and are the least concerned about their image. With children, I feel that my love for life is returned immediately, and amplified with their smiles and laughter.

I attract a crowd whenever I give a drawing or painting demonstration in my classes at the Huntington. I can feel the love and excitement for new and crazy ideas or simply the desire to learn a new skill. I enjoy working with children to analyze complex elements so that what seemed challenging becomes easy and understandable. This feeling and energy from working with children translates into my artwork and expresses itself as the interplay of being in touch with my emotions and in touch with the feelings of the people around me.
