Although art and design have been the epicenter of my life ever since I was a child, I don’t necessarily feel that I chose to be an artist as much as it chose me.  It was Hawaii that brought a dream into reality.

Composition and color are my primary inspirations as I work through each one of my pieces.  To be able to combine energy with serenity not only dictates the subjects of my work as well as describes the way I go about my life!  As I begin each piece, I like to imagine the wall that awaits it and will be influenced by its presence.....

Although art and design have been the epicenter of my life ever since I was a child, I don’t necessarily feel that I chose to be an artist as much as it chose me.  It was Hawaii that brought a dream into reality.

Composition and color are my primary inspirations as I work through each one of my pieces.  To be able to combine energy with serenity not only dictates the subjects of my work as well as describes the way I go about my life!  As I begin each piece, I like to imagine the wall that awaits it and will be influenced by its presence. With a background in Interior Design, my intent is and always has been to inspire people’s day to day lives through the spaces in which they live, work and play.  Through my art, I feel I have an opportunity to do exactly this.  

By taking a different perspective of a subject ~ to be inside of a wave rather than on the shore, or within a macro version of nature instead of an overall landscape ~ I seek to show the world at a more involved level through art. Always enamored by the elements, I’ve found that by incorporating them in subtle ways - crushed sea glass, sand or lava aggregate - there is a connection to the art besides just the brushstrokes of paint.

Each canvas should be able to stand alone with line, color and texture creating interest, but together present an unabridged impression of the beauty this world offers us each and every day.

Artwork Collections

Illustiration Art Collection

Like Norman Rockwell, Seuss personally created every rough sketch, preliminary drawing, final line drawing and finished work for each page of every project he illustrated. Despite the technical and budgetary limitations of color printing during the early and mid-twentieth century, Dr. Seuss the artist was meticulous about color selection. He created specially numbered color charts and elaborate color call-outs to precisely accomplish his vision for each book. Saturated reds and blues, for example, were carefully chosen for The Cat in the Hat to attract and maintain the visual attention of a six-year-old audience. By the time Seuss’s book career took off, sharp draftsman skills were evident in drawings. His ability to move a storyline ahead via illustrations filled with tension, movement and color became a hallmark component of his work, and the surreal images that unfolded over six decades became the catalyst for a humorous and inspired learning experience.

Bronze Collection

Artist Leo Rijn, the inaugural sculptor for the Dr. Seuss Tribute Collection I, was selected to launch this project due to his prized work with some of today’s top talent in the world of film, entertainment and the visual arts (including Tim Burton, Ang Lee and Steven Spielberg). Rijn has been identified as one of today’s brightest sculpting talents because of his ability to breathe life into the written word and successfully transform two-dimensional ideas into three-dimensional works of art. Universal Studios commissioned Leo to develop and oversee the creation of numerous maquette scale models for the Monumental Dr. Seuss Sculptures at Seuss Landing in Orlando, Florida. Leo was instrumental in the art direction for many of the sculpted characters and buildings now on display at this permanent Seuss attraction. His strikingly accurate Seuss works embody a masterful and intuitive Seussian sensibility, establishing him as a leading talent in interpretive sculpting.

Taxidermy Colletion

Seuss embarked on an ingenious project in the early 1930s as he evolved from two-dimensional artworks to three-dimensional sculptures. What was most unusual for these mixed-media sculptures was the use of real animal parts including beaks, antlers and horns from deceased Forest Park Zoo animals where Seuss’s father was superintendent. Unorthodox Collection of Taxidermy was born in a cramped New York apartment and included a menagerie of inventive creatures with names like the “Two Horned Drouberhannis,” “Andulovian Grackler,” and “Semi-Normal Green-Lidded Fawn.” Shortly after Seuss created this unique collection of artworks, Look Magazine dubbed Seuss “The World’s Most Eminent Authority on Unheard-Of Animals.” To this day, Seuss’s Unorthodox Collection of Taxidermy remains as some of the finest examples of his inventive and multi-dimensional creativity.

 

Secret Art & Archives

Illustrator by day, surrealist by night, Seuss created a body of irrepressible work that redefines this American icon as an iconographic American artist. Yet, the Secret Art often shows a side of the artist that most readers, familiar with him through his classic children’s books, have never seen. This collection, created over a period of more than 60 years, encompasses the entirety of Seuss’s multi-dimensional talent. The artistic golden thread highlighted throughout this collection is apparent in each wildly imaginative and surreal Secret Art image. The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss is an inimitable collection of artworks created at night for his own personal enjoyment. These works were rarely, if ever, exhibited during his lifetime and provide a deeper glimpse into the art and life of this celebrated American Icon.
