Artist Statement

My paintings and drawings are simply taken from my surroundings. They are of my friends. They are my pop culture, my news, my experiences on the street, and my anxieties I have about growing old. My art is earnest but always with an overcoat of whimsy. When I think about making art, I try to remember how great it felt to be a kid. So color and play are important factors when I approach my paintings. All things things sacred come from youth.
