“To me, beauty is looks you can never forget. A face should jolt, not soothe.” John Waters

“I believe in art that is vibrant and accessible. This has led to me work in a wide variety of media, including painting, sculpture, illustration, and comics using traditional and new tools. In my art practice, the process is simply the means to an end. I make objects for enjoyment and eyeball exercise. Subjects that interest me are women, food, tropical motifs, hair, and kitsch. My aesthetic is twisted and bold – a reflection of how I view the world. I make art for everyday people’s everyday lives.”
