Self Portrait.jpg


I was raised by a television in suburban America -- tuned in to all the big, bold, shiny things being sold in big, bold, shiny commercials. One of my first memories is the colors of the cereal aisle flashing by as I rode in my mom’s grocery cart. I still see things this way. I’m more likely to notice an ad on the side of the highway than the forest behind it.
We all try to isolate ourselves from the unfamiliar, I'm poking holes in that.
