My work focuses on the consumption of information and the insertion of ideas through visual relationships. I am interested in the juxtaposition of seemingly arbitrary imagery caused by the everyday bombardment of visual media via the Internet. The images presented include subjects like Japanese pop culture icons, variety T.V. shows, videogames, and comic books.

These images are produced as silkscreen prints then transferred onto canvas. The collages, which are stitched together from a library of images, are composed beforehand on drafting vellum. I often return to the screen prints utilizing different media such as pencil or gouache paints.
