statement

I have always been interested in pop culture, side shows at Coney Island, the carnies and the modern sideshows of celebrity news and gossip. I try to integrate images of the paparazzi’s famous people into my paintings such as Britney Spears, Christina Ricci and George Clooney, idols of a dumbed down culture.

Influenced by Joseph Cornell, Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, I also like to make wooden structures using collage, old wall paper and pictures. I have done a number of art boxes and am now working on structures that combine painting with other elements.
