Throughout my career I have relied on the collective unconscious for guidance and inspiration. Image flashes, which oftentimes are brought about through found objects and photographs or subjects from old popular culture magazines, bring about a broad spectrum of results from the darkly comedic to socio-political observations. I also tend to utilize my own past experiences by over-painting or reworking previously completed paintings and sculptures, which has a tendency to result in multi-layered narratives. In the end, what matters most is the result of mixing my ideas with past or future thoughts, as the input of others through the collective unconscious finds its way in.
