It is 'easy' to make work when one is angry or upset, the expression and emotion come easily; but what happens when the artist is content? In the brief pauses in life where one feels as if things are going their way and one is truly where they are supposed to be, the universal stereotype of the artist as misunderstood sufferer is questioned.

 
This body of work attempts to make beautiful what can be the ugliest thing of all for an artist: happiness.
