I primarily work in mixed media painting but also explore photography, sculpture and printmaking. One key component in my artistry is the juxtaposition of traditional and nontraditional materials to reach a non conducive organic outcome. My oeuvre focuses on using found objects that reside only in lower income areas as well as materials used in labor oriented work alongside traditional methods of painting and sculpture. This allows me to explore my fascination in the interaction of materials but also allows for the work to have a cultural identity. This subversive aestheticism allows for a display of cultural identity that makes commentary on social economical issues within lower income populations.
