"The clean yet vaudevillian nature of these drawings allows the implied sexuality to imbue a sense of comedy. The graphic quality is offset by a permeating fleshiness that slugs through each piece. The exaggerated folds and excretions of the physical forms are buffered by inhuman caricatures with blank expressions. The content of each drawing varies, yet all retain a similar sense of pornagraphic lampooning" 


"My work began as a documentation and recording of moments but has transformed into a catalogue of self. My photographs are an attempt at self actualization that will never be achieved; it's a continuous fight to create visual stimulation. I suppose I am trying to find a still moment amongst the background noise."
