My work is made up of drawing and collage based studies of everyday things, people and happenings. I work in multiple mediums to create my images, working in a method of layering; using paint, scraps of paper, graphite, found images, and ink. My work incorporates quirky humor by using references from life that I see or overhear, telling personal, relatable stories.
