This is a house in my town that is not sadly neglected. But the tree on the side thrives on, and I enjoy it every spring. This is the home as I picture it in, "better days". I just love the blooming shrubs and tree, and the flag hanging proudly.

I am a self taught artist, living in a small picturesque town in Connecticut. I paint almost daily, in a bedroom turned studio in my home, and listen to the Joe Rogan Experience obsessively while creating my art. I create my art with oil paints, and canvas, and am inspired by almost anything. I think you never stop learning, and work hard to perfect my craft. I like my art to remind me of a beautiful place I have been with my family, or a tree blossoming at an old farmhouse. I basically like cheerful art that takes me to a place, or a beautiful scene. My home is full of art like this, as I believe your home should be your sanctuary, one that fills you with nostalgia and happiness. My painting “Happy Place” won 3rd place in an online contest, and I have also won a blue ribbon for my personal painting of “Ratatouille” and ribbons for other paintings. I’m always grateful when someone spends their hard earned money to purchase one of my paintings, or two, for their own sanctuary, and honored that they welcome my art into their home.
