"Art History has always been a passion of mine. My work depicts famous works, artists, and artistic movements in various ways to illustrate their influence on the art world. I mix artists in unexpected ways but there is always an artistic thread that binds them together. My work is like a tribute to all the artists who have ever inspired me. My work is also intended to put emphasis back on past masters in a fun, unexpected way. I am a sculpture and a painter, I combine both by hand sculpting forms and painting on them as if on a canvas. Together I feel my two mediums come combine to create my personal style."
