Artist Statement

"I always had an affinity for nostalgic pop culture which gives me my inspiration for what I paint, which I guess makes me a pop artist. That nostalgic feeling I get is always fun and happy which translates through my colourful work. My Big-Eye portraits have changed somewhat, I dropped the black outlines and flat paint surfaces for a more quasi-realistic style. I paint what makes me smile, and it seems to make everyone smile, and that makes me happy, simple as that."
