In my paintings, I illustrate the balance of truth and absurdity in human beings. I'm fascinated by intention and word play so before I have an idea for a painting, I write a nonfiction story and then I paint it using symbols (or, in some cases, cymbals). More than anything, I love to observe people and then regurgitate that information as I saw it. I do this through cartoons, paintings, words, and sometimes combine all three mediums.
