“As I was in the kitchen preparing meals, I could look out the window and see my youngest daughter trying to fly a kite. She struggled but was unable to get the kite to fly. Disappointed, she eventually came home with the kite dragging behind her. In the painting I wanted to show her successfully flying a kite.”

“Capturing the moment of doubt which exists in between a decision.
Standing on top of a compass, the woman seems to be in tension with herself. There is a hyena peeking behind her, guarding her, as a symbolism of her own demons which must be tamed; tamed in order to make the right decision.

St. George & the Dragon
“We all love the underdog, don’t we? St. George is the ultimate underdog, facing a dragon to save a Princess. To make their people feel good under royal rule, St. George was declared the patron saint of England. There are sculptures of this scene on building cornerstones all over the country.
The subject of the painting was not decided until half way through the process. I chose colors and applied them to the canvas with a squeegee. While painting, my imagination saw a dragon in the strokes, then a man. After that, the paint was applied with more purpose to achieve an image of the old story.
The colors I chose, and the near mythological story depicted, reminded me of traditional Greek vases. Hence, the painting is treated like one of these vases that are painted the same way to this day.”
