Hello! I’m an artist living in beautiful San Francisco, CA. My work largely centers around familiar and not-so-familiar words and phrases from literature, song lyrics and everyday life. Sometimes they’re so ubiquitous that they require no explanation; other times they come from a private thought or an inside joke. I’m hugely influenced by other wordplay artists such as Wayne White, Jenny Holzer, Parra, Marian Bantjes and David Shrigley.
Some of the things I love and am inspired by, in no particular order: vintage signage, Americana, record sleeve design, Las Vegas, rodeos, soul music, cheesy TV theme songs.
