1: any of numerous widely distributed tropical birds (order Psittaciformes and especially family Psittacidae) that are often crested and brightly colored, have a distinctive stout hooked bill and zygodactyl feet, and include some excellent mimics

Cathartic, drenched in tongue-in-cheek symbolism, and drawing on the lusciousness and precision of decorative genre with an ab-ex abandon, my work makes use of color, fluidity, energy, juxtaposition, transparency, and control to suss out the emotional layers of my own experiences and tie them to the larger context of humanity through common allegorical frameworks.
Continuing from earlier explorations in modular sets of paintings, my recent work pushes the boundaries of traditional composition. Diptychs, triptychs, and quadtychs are worked and may be installed in every parallel or aligned arrangement, each revealing a unique anthropomorphic symbolic narrative.
