My paintings honor the effervescence of living an object-filled life within a content-rich world. I revel in whimsicality and am intrigued by nonessential indulgences, such as desserts, pool toys and novelty pets. My attraction to intense color, combined imagery and cumulative narrative shape my paintings. Whether on media platforms, in basements or at tag sales, I engage with the viable content, materials, and objects. Culled from social media, cartoons, and dreams, my paintings combine cultural references into a personal form of celebration.
