I am influenced by what I see and use everyday. I elevate the commonplace and instill beauty and nobility in the often overlooked world of commercial products. My work is multi-media. I work in oil, acrylic watercolor and collage.Reconstructed packaging becomes pop art inspired social commentary. The ordinary becomes extraordinary.
