Todd started painting along with his two young children. At first trying to use up paint that they abandoned, he painted shapes that reflected his love of 1960's pop culture imagery. The flowers can be traced back to a doodle as a child on school notebooks. “My goal is to spread beauty. My work is an affirmation of life. A celebration of the love within. It is the visual expression of what is inside of me but, also works on others to bring out their happiness and love of life".
