I am influenced by many things – vintage punk rock, VHS tapes, internet blogs, WWI battle ships, beat-up amps, and custom guitars all play a role in the development of my paintings and digital prints.

For the past four years, the notion of ‘cycle’ has played an increasing role within my studio practice. During this time, I became interested in how avant-garde movements succeed and fail within popular culture. Most recently, I have been focusing on two trends: ‘Dazzle Ships’ and ‘New Old Stock’ to shape visual imagery.
