Artist's Statement

My work explores every day objects including automobiles, suburban landscapes, and objects found in the office space. These ordinary icons are dissolved, obfuscated, yet carefully rendered in order to explore their deeper place in the contemporary American dream. Sturdy normative objects and environments reflect very human characteristics of loneliness, isolation, and vulnerability.
