Social Media Photos

These are generally quick ideas that I post on Facebook and Instagram. Some of them inspire larger ideas, most of them are accompanied by a blog statement.

After personal experience with bullying and being an avid observer of our world, I can’t stop seeing and thinking about bullying.


Drawing is like breathing for me. It’s how I work out ideas and begin to make sense of the world.

Off-The-Wall Drawings

Some drawings just need to be released from the confines of the wall.

It’s all about relationships for me. I’m visually attempting to describe the vagaries and challenges of being human.
