My artwork takes on a whimsical and sometimes unsettling view of culture, politics, science- fiction, and religion. I draw on inspiration from my childhood in Northern New Jersey. This was a time just before photographs of missing children started showing up on the sides of milk- cartons. Children were allowed to play unsupervised and sometimes came upon both wonderful and terrifying experiences. You could say the very opposite of “safe spaces”. Playing in vacant lots, by railroad tracks and in wooded areas not yet scooped up by developers. Good and bad, this time was a hot-bed of imagination for me and I draw on that time in my life to this day.
I attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York where I studied fine art, design and illustration. I currently live in Denver, Colorado.
