It IS You (and me too)

My most recent work explores the feeling and reality of being disconnected and alienated (which results in multiple personal realities), despite and sometimes because of the close proximity in which we live to one and other.

In this day and age when it can feel impossible to understand how our neighbor could raise their children the way they do, how they could behave the way they do, how they could vote the way they do, it is incumbent upon us to reflect on the realities we construct that make us different, and also try to see how, by just being human, we are the same.

By pulling on influences as wide-ranging as comics, Mexican muralists, and 1950's fashion I create paintings that reveal the beauty of living; in all its mundaness, pain, and glory.
