I seek to create work with authenticity that metaphorically illustrates an acute view of cultural, social, ethical, economic and political issues.  My personal images are derived from a rich archive of cultural and personal references - mixing history and metaphors that form and reveal a narrative that utilize icons and symbols.  Automatic drawing, vintage ephemera, and childhood memories influence these personal images that are designed to uncover and expose an abstract and at times unsettling intersection of past youth experiences and adulthood - for viewers to relate to their own inspirations, to appreciate, and then share.
