            Drawings                                     Paintings

      When I see a toy I see a story. In my still-life’s I combine and arrange different varieties of toys to create unexpected scenarios and situations that reveal timeless qualities in human behavior and relationships that anyone at one time or another could find relatable.


Depending upon the toy’s form, character, history and or genre the stories the paintings tell can be epic in a biblical, historical or mythological sense or they can be brief, tender and charming similar to a short tale that friends share with each other over a cup of coffee. All the stories my paintings tell intermingle the awkward, ironic, cute, and surprising with the sometimes harsh and edgier moments in life that have the potential to become surprisingly relevant experiences over time.
