I construct my visual narratives by coalescing fragments of unrelated information together. My source materials span the gamut, from legal documents to rap lyrics; family photographs to discarded street signs. The artwork tells abstracted versions of stories I’ve overheard, imagined or experienced.

Not bound by a single medium, I use oil painting, photography, architecture and installation as my tools for exploration. I have developed a signature style of vivid, layered compositions that interplay between two dimensional and three dimensional space. Recurring themes of language, identity, memory, place and personal freedom appear in almost every piece. The conceptual origins differ from project to project, but the continuing thread is that each piece seeks to intertwine the viewer’s reality with my own.
