"My work is created due to an uncontrollable passion for the pop culture industry and exploring our relationship with characters and worlds that are created. I think that artwork should make you feel something. I want my work to make you happy. I pick characters and images that I personally have a connection to and represent them with the material they were created from. By having the book or the comic book pages bring a new level to the painting. I wanted to show the characters coming out of the book pages bringing new life to images."
