My Mission

I create work with simple materials that fuse together to form images that make the viewer smile, whether or not they want to. I take everyday events or objects, positive or negative, and filter them through the perspective of a child or an innocent mind. I romanticize the world and try to get people to see the world more positively and in a more calming way. I tend to use high key paints, lately it's been gouache, and toned textured papers to make whimsically, kitschy work. I take small ideas and portray them in a grandiose way. When people look back, they look with nostalgia and happiness, which is why I use materials that reference the past.
