"I am a respectfully irreverent rebel with absolutely no cause."
"I have loved art and artists since I was a child. My mother influenced me to be creative and taught me the value of any art form. Every memory I have of this learning process is attached to some sort of music, which was constantly being played in our home. Music, art, laughter and satire were my foundation. My love of the classics led me to pursue Art History academically. My great, great love of the masterpieces and those who created them, combined with my overwhelming desire to laugh and to make people laugh, has brought me to where I am today creatively. Accused of never taking anything seriously, I now look at the subjects of the masterpieces and wonder how they would translate today."
"Drawing great inspiration from Pop Art and the Graffiti masters, I respectfully seek to deface art and force feed it my own personal brand of irreverence. Additionally, my design work is almost always influenced and created with visceral reactions to a song and it's lyrics are usually incorporated in the piece. My current fascination with society's addiction to headphones and earbuds is also visible in my work. i am joyously grateful for my newly acquired free time to put my passion to work and am fueled by the support of my family and by my inspirational, artistic friends who keep me motivated and continually challenge me to be better at what I do."
