Artist Statement

The ideas behind this work comes from everyday life; the life I live and have lived, my environment, popular culture, and the media. Formally I use everything that is at my disposal; random marks, spray paint, text, collage, and cartoons. I want my drawings to be read like books and listened to like music. The viewer needs to step closer to see the details and step back to take in the full picture. The world is a messy mixed-up place and hopefully my drawings reflect that.
