Artist STATEMENT

My work most often juxtaposes self(ish)-portraits with seemingly arbitrary landscapes and icons that, upon closer examination, contain a melancholy sense of hilarity and the smirk of sexual innuendo that would probably make my traditional Montanan artist grandparents roll in their graves (half kidding, my grandfather would actually give me all the high fives).  I create art as a means to reflect on the people in my life. Both in the physical time-frame and also in the obscure impact in which they individually inform past and future. Through the process in which I categorize, compartmentalize, and assign meaning to my life's influential characters through symbolism allows for closure and rebirth simultaneously on a Ground's Day loop, forever.
