[ A chaotic image with comic book qualities is set against a dark cyan background. Subtle depictions of beloved childrens' cartoons fill the frame to create a playful, childlike image. ]

Scooby Doo and Shaggy: those happy, paranoid friends that we all love for some strange reason; the stressed-out-but- loveable, maybe-a-little-drunk Fred Flintstone, who reminds you of your father; or the moment your best friend decided to act more like Ursula than Flounder… my fusion of characters creates playful fictional worlds that explore my personal relationships and my emotional responses to these experiences. My time spent at University at Albany allowed me to pursue the characters beyond their trademarked persona. Here too I was able to observe my real world relationships and merge the two realms, cartoon and flesh, into an ecstatic befuddlement.
