Artist Statement:
My motto, “See the Unseen” is realized thru symbolism, the language of my art. As a Magical Realist, I faithfully represent the seen exterior, thereby revealing an unseen spirit that symbolizes uplifting qualities of human nature. The titles and stories are based on the symbolism of the subject.

Symbolic Story:
Even though Squirrel trusted his needs would always be met, he preferred and was really good at planning ahead. But one day he decided to take a break from being prudent, and go for a walk in the park. He came across a Neapolitan cupcake with a red candy ball on top. This reminded him of the importance for taking life less seriously, enjoying it, and having a ball. He indulged his whims, took down the ball and started to play. From then on Squirrel made every day a celebration, and reveled in the sweetness of life.
