Statement

(American, b. 1974)

Through using character-based drawing and painting practices, I find artistic interest in exploring the commonalities of certain connective aspects of American,Asian and African cultures. Specifically, I am exploring our distinct American footprint by using a combination of folk,tribal-based and other visual symbolism to make idealistic parallels and promote a sense of humor and allegory in my work. My biggest influences include American Folk Art and Tales, Hollywood Horror Imagery, and American Punk Rock of the late 1970's and Hip Hop of the early 1980's.
