Most of my work is done subconsciously and intuitively, without a plan. I believe there are meanings in it for each of us to find. Sometimes, it’s just about enjoying the absurdity! Full Bio

    Cindy I like the illustration. There are so many Schnackels and peanuts around that is hard to find the right ones to understand this image. I am curious find out what are you talking about. Thanks.

  • Thanks for taking a look at them, Alex! I don’t always know what the meaning is because I tend to work up images from my subconscious. After they’re done I sometimes see meanings I wasn’t consciously aware of when I was painting or drawing. I love to hear viewers’ interpretations of what it means to them because I believe most art has the capacity to mean different things to different people. Also, sometimes my images are just about absurdity and humor but may or may not be poking fun at something in real life. It is really part of the art to me, to know that it’ll have a different meaning to each viewer. So feel free to interpret them as they are to you! Thanks again for looking.

    Excuse the awful pun, but is this a bookcase or a nutcase? Seriously – great imaginative painting skills here.

  • LOL, both! The series is Nut Case. There are more in the works, too.
