Artist Statement Submitted 2018

I was raised on picture books and I wear those influences proudly as my work explores the areas between fine art and illustration. My art covers the complexity of human relationships and emotions, but is served within the framework of a children’s book illustration, which keeps my darker themes approachable. Inversely, I am actively using the language of graphic illustration and serving it within the framework of fine art, which creates a blending of styles. This is an attempt to find common ground between the high and lowbrow arts while also reaching an audience abandoned by both.
