I bring humor into my work because life is so serious and I don’t want to forget to lighten up every once in a while. Art lets me explore uncertainties in life and projecting my thoughts on paper. I get inspired by my memories of food always bringing the family together. I depict food for the idea of it as a binding ingredient in life, relationships, and survival.
In some way my art connects me to where I was born and raised in Illinois. Working with my hands and creating something physical that you can hold and discover is what drives my art. Mixing mediums has always been a passion of exploration and my work combines various mediums whether physical like watercolor, ink, or acrylic, paper Mache sculptures, or digital prints.
