My work documents what’s going on in my life using parody. In a sense the paintings are self-portraits, autobiographical in that they include the places where I was raised, my taste in music, travel, TV shows, and books I’ve read. Confidence and vulnerability are two important factors in my work. My goal is to be confident in my mark making while vulnerable in my subject matter.
