“I explore alternate worlds with my art using collage elements photographed by me, paint and found objects adhered to objects. I put those worlds into physical form whether with abstract figures, graffiti style motifs or a combination of both. I translate this into original art works, fine art prints, home and personal goods. I hope you love what I’ve created and it brightens your day a little bit.”
