"My work celebrates the history of enameling and its longstanding tradition of storytelling. Using these traditional techniques, my work revives the medium through a contemporary context fueled by street art, comics, pop art and counter culture. My illustrations transcend the two-dimensional realm of paper and are given new life in the physical world as wearable objects. I like to believe that my characters are exploring and experiencing our environment as a departure from their own."
