Artist Statement

I paint to get a reaction.

The enjoyment I get when people respond to the work whether it be positive or negative is always really satisfying.

It consolidates what I want to portray and express in my art.

My work is graphic and contemporary.

There is an energy jumping out of the canvas which is bold and makes a statement.

The style is figurative with an influence from the Pop Art movement.

I choose images of celebrities who have a reputation for being icons and reactionary.
