I started the Midnight Rabbit as a creative outlet for the characters and tales that had been accumulating in my sketchbook for years. I enjoy writing fantastical stories as much as I love reading them. A lot of my inspiration for my paintings comes from the stories I grew up reading from Roald Dahl , Maurice Sendak, Shel Silverstein & countless others.
Each painting seems to take on a life of its own as it will most often change from the original sketch as the story unravels in my head. A bunny will become a scientist, a giraffe a staraffe and so on. Painting for me is a lot like reading a book I've never read before, the general theme of the storyline is known but the ending is always a surprise.
