Ready to Hang
My favorite place to be is on safari. This wildlife collection is inspired by the years I have spent in Africa. When the weather is hot and the animals are on the horizon an optical illusion of movement dances in the heat waves. This monkey piece was inspired by my nephew who loves his monkeys. The blue was chosen because it reminds me of a vervet monkey, if you have ever seen one, you know the color blue when where it lies on the cute little creature:) The name, Patrick Swayze Avatar, comes from my smartass brother in law taking a guess at what the painting was before it was complete. This piece hangs great with any of the other 12x12 paintings in my collection.
I have spent the last decade working in adventure travel, particularly safaris in East Africa. I grew up with a sketchbook or paintbrush in hand. At Boston College I majored in business but did a concentration in art in order to stay in touch with my creative side. I have always been obsessed and inspired by colorful art from all over the world. I love bringing pops of color into spaces. Contact me if you would like a customized piece.
