Artist's Statement

 My work is inspired by the hope, decadence, and glory of American pop consumer culture.  Along the way I have attempted to retrace my life to a simpler, yet more complicated past - my childhood.  In doing so, I have aroused an appreciation for the value of pleasure and the fantasies, promises, and disappointments that have brought me to this place.  Moments I have embraced, but wish I could escape.
