This series of abstracted images of vintage toys represent the lost innocence of today’s childhood and the complications of modern adult life. We live in a hectic, frequently stressful time.

Although difficult and challenging, our “fractured” lives can also be fun and interesting. The bright colors and animated look of the painting captures the positive aspects of this new order. In this way this images captures both the positive and negative sides of these issues.

These paintings are intricate to make and take a lot of time. Using oil paint, each small piece of the relief is painted separately. I cut all the wood shapes and assemble the pieces by screwing them on to the painted wood panel from behind making them very secure and sturdy.
