Art installation of 4th grade paintings. The power of ONE!
Children's artwork has a charm and authenticity that can't be duplicated. Beautiful!
The paintings look wonderful individually, but are so powerful as one entire piece of artwork.
Completed painting for art installation at Lululemon
This project started as a painting. A painting that was the result of a conversation I had with my son. My goal in that conversation was to help him understand that happiness and coolness come from within, and materialistic things don’t ultimately make a person happy. This painting received more “likes” and positive comments than some of my previous artworks. It struck a chord with people of all ages, races, and economic backgrounds. Why?
Some people naturally have a positive outlook on life. They were just born with a happy disposition. Others have to put in some work to be happy. But we’re all human. We all want the same thing for ourselves, our children, our family, & friends; to be happy inside.
My intention is to use this artwork in a variety of ways as a friendly, fun reminder that YOU are in control of your own happiness. Through paintings, artist in residence programs in schools & corporations, collaborations, and murals, I want to spread this message and empower people of all ages. The Happy Inside Project is a lesson for children and a reminder to adults.
