My artwork can be seen in many of the renowned galleries and museums worldwide-granted you have a computer and internet connection.
My figurative work continues to build upon itself where images present themselves in a very clear way. I am able to break down the image such as I do with the puns, and create something that speaks to me and my viewers as a lasting image that has the strength to stand alone and compliments other pieces in the gallery.
My work is a reflection of me, and I consider myself to be funny, witty, smart, opinionated and always unexpected. My work includes both humorous works that incorporate puns and plays with and in the English Language, and in contrast other pieces are images that speak to me in either a matter of fact or an abstract manner.
In my Humorous works AKA my “Pun Paintings” I deconstruct the English language by use of the pun. My Pun Paintings appeal to me personally for the humorous aspect and the witty form of intellectual play.
Art and the act of creating has always been of interest to me. As a young child I would spend my allowance on 'How to Draw" books sketch pads, pencils and pens. I was attracted to books and magazines with a sense of humor and satirical aspects such as MAD magazine, of which I collected. Digging through of box of childhood memories I happened upon the book "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs", it was then that I realized where my appeal for food based images came from. Like most artists, I started with graphite and paper and it wasn't until college that I started painting and I was hooked. I feel that to truly learn about oneself, one must simply look at the early chapters of life's book.
