I create fantastical narratives where realistic environments transition into the world of the imagination. This body of work combines colorful, embellished layers of painting, drawing, collage and found components that create visions of personal experience. Animal imagery reflects aspects of our psychology and human nature. Architectural elements relate to how we interact with our modern society. I hope to encourage the viewer to interact with their own human emotion and their personal tie to the beauty and magic that constantly surrounds us.
