Welcome to my gallery
My work is a mixed media, photography, watercolour and collage celebration of nightlife, gay life, drag culture, travel and pop culture. As a high school art teacher, I hope this inspires fellow educators and students alike!
I use sketchbooks to document my life, for fear that I may forget key moments and memories. I use it to decipher the white noise of media and pop culture. I use it to inspire my students, and as a way to connect with them on a deeper lever. I use it to figure out who I am, what I’m doing and where I’m going. I turn to my sketchbook to have a voice when it seems like no one is listening.
My sketchbook is a tool to interact with the world around me and to understand the world inside me.
