My paintings trick your eyes and guide your brain to somewhere else. What you see isn’t all you think, and what you think isn’t all you see. Through the humor and sarcasm of my subjects and techniques, ideas shift constantly between fantasy and reality. Inspired by mundane experiences, anthropomorphic ideas, aural and visual puns, and cultural issues, my paintings’ quirkiness and ambiguity intrigue viewers and lead them to linger and discuss; the work contains something personal, something universal, and something critical.
