ROCKIN HORSE ART is a fun art and fashion company inspired by childhood dreams and the power of the imagination. I develop my paintings to demonstrate distorted childhood dreams, using symbols of childhood, such as carousel horses and amusement parks represented with convoluted perspectives.

Symbolic imagery is used to represent the imagination of childhood and is often juxtaposed into a technological world of conformity and loneliness. An example of this juxtaposition is humorously displayed as children riding carousel horses are sending text messages instead of enjoying the simple pleasures of childhood.

Red striped zebras, unicorns, carousel rides, amusement parks, and candy shops are contrasted with darker images of skeletons and death. This combination of the whimsical dreams of childhood and serious, sometimes disturbing images of the loneliness and isolation of adulthood is a common theme in my paintings.

I have been drawing and riding horses since childhood, so horses are used as symbols of childhood dreams in my paintings. They are often humorously depicted among pop culture references to demonstrate the disparity between imaginative individuality and a culture of conformity. My paintings display the importance of holding on to one’s inner child and never letting go.
