Master of Fine Arts (MFA)
My work has always been about the personal relationships I've had in the past. It is driven by the
nostalgia of what was, and how it came to be within the present. It is not the act of languishing in a better time or the need to replay a scenario from when life was thought to have been easier. It is replaying the past that makes me chuckle, even if at the time the said event was not so hilarious or amusing. While I am heavily influenced by the psychological workings of the human mind and sociology, I ultimately decided to create my thesis, not as an explanation of my use of cartooning and the grotesque. Nor as a lengthy discussion of why my psychology and interests are what they are or how they affect the paintings I make, but through a narrative view. Small glimpses of a past that helped formulate the overall project and theme of my work.
