About April

When I was in college, I was captivated by a painting at a nearby art museum: “The River Seine at Chatou” by Andre Derain. I would go and sit in front of it every week.

Something about the colors…It JUST made me feel good. No matter what my mood, when I looked at it, I smiled.

When I left, I felt happy. My goal as an artist is to do for others what Derain did for lighten a mood and bring a smile….a pretty top-knotch way to make a living in my book! Read More
