Shows & Exhibits


Through my work I explore serious issues with imagination and humor. My intention is to spark curiosity, conversation, and awareness in the viewer. Stylistically, when viewed from afar, my work resembles classical portraiture done in oils. As the viewer moves closer a secondary discovery is made and the viewer may start to name the items that strike a memory of their own past possessions. This quiet conversation is the point that may move them to a deeper questioning and this is where I hope to engage them through my art.
