I am a self taught artist born and raised in Kansas City, MO. My work deals mostly with the minute, the unnoticed, and the humorousness that is often overlooked in our daily lives.

As such, a lot of what I do is small scale, much of it starting at 2-3mm. I feel small works (or larger works made up of tiny components) exude an intimate, inviting, and playful air that can entice the viewer to come closer, focus, and engage with the piece. It’s almost a form of seduction.
