Artist Statement

"My work can be quiet but still have an impact. It can be serious and still be whimsical."

Statement About the Series

The name of this series is Titled Channel 10. This series highlights a transition from continuous line, to figurative shapes and Characters. I found inspiration, after a week of binge watching television and eating ice cream. I had found so many sources of nostalgia that I had to put it on a canvas. Each work of art highlights a unique character from a sitcom or series in an abstracted form, utilizing seven different mediums.
