Artist's description:

“My current solo work in painting continues with whimsical characters within fun scenarios. My paintings strive to convey a kind of “quirky elegance”. I am strongly inspired by innovators of stylization like Modigliani and Klimt. My past experience in textile design instilled in me a love of textures and patterns which enter into my work. I enjoy writing short narratives to accompany each painting allowing the viewer to come along with me on a whimsical journey celebrating the joy of life!” Helene

"Couch Tomato"
Cherry was born in a very small town in New England. Her hair was cherry red and her skin was white as snow. As a child, she was often teased and called “cherry berry” because of her long red tresses which caused many uncomfortable situations, filling her mind with self-doubt and anxiety.
Years flew by and Cherry grew into a beautiful young lady. However, she had a difficult time accepting life as it was and desperately tried to change it the way she thought it should be. This struggle made her extremely unhappy.
One day she shed her clothes and flopped on the couch, and made her mind stop from racing. Right then she realized that her thoughts were causing her disappointment in her life. Dragging her past and fearful of the future, she forgot to be present. At that very moment peace filled her being. What thoughts could become success and happiness and one with life?
Then she realized that you don’t live your life, but life lives you.
Life is the dancer, you are the dance!
