What does it mean to celebrate beauty, whimsy, and joy as we reshape our world? My annual collections focus specifically on positive reflections. Each year, I reinvent and innovate by studying, producing, and disseminating artwork that engages the public positively. I am inspired personally to produce work that's message speaks beyond me to the world at large.

I blend the concerns and methods of abstract, conceptual, and appropriation art with photography and culture to create my own unique iconography, always vivacious. My practice produces abstraction, iconography, and type-driven positive print campaigns.

In exhibition, my mixed-medium genre artwork has found a global audience. The iconoculture collection | a world view on modern beauty, reflects seeing the beauty in what you do, through appropriated iconic images of beauty.

I want to engage generations of visual thinkers.
