Artist Statement
My work uses dark psychological and political themes as a source of personal expression.  I am having a conversation with the imagery that has shaped my imagination:  political figures, army recruiting materials, documentary photographs, advertising, movies, tv, etc.  The language I use is psychedelic, monstrous and funny, like a bad acid trip with a sense of humor.
