lives & works in austin tx


Often based on or derived from personal or found vintage photographs, my work attempts to capture, reinterpret and share a moment in time.  Visually inspired by (in no material order) vintage images, advertising, architecture, magazines, 80’s pop music and literature.  I’m drawn to narratives, humor, cliché, irony, color texture, layered meanings and shiny things.  I use paint, plaster, clay, and various other things I find around the house or that show up from amazon or ebay.
