Artist Statement/ Biography

My work contemplates notions of the everyday, the struggle for success, and what becomes valuable in life.

The daily bombardment of information leads me to draw profusely. I translate this overwhelming amount of information into works that show a rugged visual language resonate with the aesthetics explored by punk fanzines. By appropriating this visual language, and the fanzine DIY marginal network, I push my body of work outside the art space.

It is in the now that I find inspiration.
