The Happiness of Being

November 2020

My whole life I have wanted to be five. You know, because when you're six you go to first grade and that's a lot of pressure.

When you’re five, before you go to school, you have no responsibilities and your parents take care of everything. You take joy in simple things: a game, skipping, a new best friend.

My work comes from that childlike feeling of joy and freedom. I hope it inspires the safety, love, serenity, and sense of lightness arising from my five-year-old soul, as reflected in my newest painting, Soulmate.
