I create narrative figurative paintings in oil and acrylic on canvas. My subjects focus on pop culture and narratives that offer a tinge of pun-heavy humor, with nuances and metaphorical qualities. Most of my subjects derive from pop culture and my love and knowledge of cinema and music, primarily from the 1920s through the 1940s, a time that is classically known for its fashion, cinema, and politics. I often use reference photographs, either taken by myself or chosen from public domain sites. I consider the public domain photographs as hidden gems from our past, buried in time, and my goal is to give them a new life, a new appreciation and the attention I feel they deserve. My goal is two fold: to honor the iconic images that have shaped film history and to keep alive these moments and performers for future generations.
