These paintings are part of a series of oil paintings that contrast the candy hues and higher key palette reminiscent of the golden age American Illustrators (such as Norman Rockwell and J.C. Lyendecker), with a sardonic narrative, that places adults in childlike situations. By pairing contemporary and vintage elements, the paintings speak to the transitory nature of time, and the relevance of early experience in shaping who we become. My work is largely personal, drawing on my own challenges and those of friends and family to evoke a connection with the viewer.
