I steal ideas from everything. From old comic books, to the farthest reaches of Google’s search engine. I’ve even begun to paint over old landscapes I find at the thrift shop, infusing my style with the found image. My inspiration comes from all that surrounds me, but especially the graphic nature of vintage comics. So much can be interpreted from one single panel, a viewer could create an entire story if he or she wanted to. The panels I choose in my art are not to be taken seriously, much like life itself. I find showing human emotion on canvas is not only appealing to others but it raises some controversy. Many of my paintings involve loved ones embracing, the woman crying, and the man looking sternly into her eyes. The viewer has to ask themselves whether her tears are from joy or from sorrow. But in all, my work is to be taken with a light heart, and to poke fun at the art world in a whole. Comics are a great way to escape from the dull realities of life and bring out your inner child. When I’m creating I feel a sense of purpose and happiness I cannot explain. I can only describe it through the smiling faces of others viewing and enjoying my work as much as I do making it.
All works are available for custom framing, for an additional fee, depending on the size. For any inquiries feel free to contact me via email or telephone. Much appreciation to all and enjoy the work!
