I love all things outrageous. The smile of nostalgia on the face of the viewer is the moment that defines my work. Scale is often a major device I use to dwarf the adult and release the inner child.
My training may be formal and my roots traditional but my heart & soul are dedicated to the playful & unexpected. This is evident in each piece I create. Using only the highest quality materials the end product speaks to a lasting integrity, while the image doesn't take itself too seriously.
I choose to use everyday objects as my subject, often toys, abstracting them through scale - enlarging the object past the point of usual recognition. For the adult viewer I hope to give another chance at a moment long ago forgotten; for children, happiness in seeing the object taken so far out of context it is beyond their belief.
Ultimately, I want to enrich the lives of my collectors by reminding them of the simple joys in life, not to take things too seriously, there is fun to be had... everyday.
