 Artist Statement

My work involves putting together a collage of photographs and illustrations that create characters and narratives.  These stories are based on daydreams I have merging reality and things in the media that interest me.  I take elements from modern media such as television, movies, and videogames and play with them in my work like a sandbox.  To achieve a daydream look to my images I usually grab the background from an actual photograph I take and fill it with the most absurd things possible.  For example, what happens if an alien breaks into the room and has a fistfight with the teacher?  I obsessively think like that since elementary school and even visualize the situation as I stroll about my day.  The sense of play from this keeps my mind occupied and excited.
