Communication is ubiquitous and diverse. Through my paintings, I am able to creatively express the lack of personal connection in the Information Age. My inspiration is the written and verbal information within the world. Whether it be the literature I read, media I view, individuals I encounter, or stories I am so graciously told, each work of art is a direct representation of the mass amounts of information I encounter.

In the era of postmodernism, when the definition of everything is being criticized, my paintings are an abstracted conceptual reconstruction of the jumbled thoughts I am discussing in my mind. By conducting a dialectic dialogue with myself, based on experiential and cultural education, I am able to come to an eclectic conclusion consciously exerting these thoughts onto canvas.

Rather than create a distinguishable image of an object or scene, I convey communication in a consciously streaming visual narrative. By composing typographical language with a graffito aesthetic, using distinct lines and bold color schemes, I can freely express the ideas in my mind and communicate them with viewers in hopes of beginning a conversation.
