“THROUGH ART I EXPLORE and reconstruct the magical idealism of mid-twentieth-century advertising, popularized by the likes of LIFE Magazine.”
“ I TRANSFER THESE SENTIMENTS to a parallel universe of my own creation, constructed of text and figurative imagery, oftentimes containing metaphors and splashes of humor.”
“FOUND EPHEMERA, BOOKS AND posters serve as points of inspiration which I then translate into advertisements for entirely imagined products...”
“...rendered in opaque, water-based paints to evoke the bold colors and sharp textures associated with mid-twentieth-century commercial design.”
"WITH PAINT AND BRUSHES, I visually attempt to reset the thread of time..."
"...installing myself as the creator of an anti-capitalistic zeitgeist that resurrects the wonder and intrigue of print advertising. "
