My hope is that my work is pleasing to the eye and has an enjoyable presence. I delight in making it humorous and also elegant. Common themes are poodles, gold chains, kittens, snakes, aliens, and flowers.

I’ve been very influenced by my travels to Paris, Budapest, Berlin, Taiwan, and Mexico (where I lived for 18 months), and in living in New York City.
