My artwork takes a critical view of social, political and cultural issues. I like to deconstruct the American dream. Engaging subjects as diverse as road trips, sewing, and drug addiction my work reproduces familiar signs, arranging them into new conceptually layered pieces.

Often times these themes are combined into mixed media pieces that feature domestic objects juxtaposed with whimsical objects, and often embellished with stenciled text. The color blue establishes a dream-like surreal quality, suggests calmness and safety, and often unifies the objects.

I use a variety of materials and processes, its highly experimental.
