I am a Pittsburgh based artist who has spent time working as an embalmer in funeral homes. My paintings are made using acrylic paint, shellac, wood and nails and tell stories about death, devils and saints. I'm greatly influenced by The Day of the Dead, Halloween, horror films, churches, The German Expressionists and my time in funeral homes.
