DESCRIPTION: Paintings, Unframed, Oil on linen

ARTIST STATEMENT: My portrait paintings explore identity, pop culture anthropology and human spirit. I collaborate with my models to style portraits with incongruous props and handmade t-shirts. I document self-awareness framed by irreverence, raw candor, authenticity and spontaneity. My work explores celebrated cultural forces like prom queens, Lone Rangers and rogue cheerleaders seasoned with symbolic props. The work reimagines gender stereotypes and revisits past decades with a dose of satirical zing.
