When I was a kid, I didn't fear what was under the bed or in the closet. I wondered why they would be hiding there instead of hanging out with me. So now I tempt them out of the darkness and into the sunshine through my watercolors.
My work reflects what I most identify with: the wonderfully weird, slightly off or exaggerated "Acutely Believable Creatures" that live in the corners of the imagination. My monsters are my ode to the Children's Television Workshop that I grew up watching. Through my art and storytelling, I want to create a diverse universe that understands the joy in living with and caring for everyone, even if they look a little different than me.
My work is also fueled by the ambitious, kind and feral monsters that call me dad. They have given shape to many of my wandering thoughts.
