Struggles confronts the every day obstacles that I encounter, inspired by stand-up comedy. Exploring comedy and its role as a healing tool, I find self deprecating humor to be the most effective weapon to gain control over my struggles. Much like a comedian on stage, I celebrate my endless struggles in oil paint. I offer a therapeutic aspect in each of my paintings, as interrupting thought patterns through comedic relief and acceptance has helped me throughout my own life.
