ARTIST STATEMENT

  • My visual storytelling pulls from classical American cartooning and sequential art, a wide range of artistic influences, and the poetry writing tradition and world to explore and break down themes, patterns and our visual experience in a way that strives to connect to the viewer on a variety of levels, and further positive conversations on various subjects.
