“Comedy has always been a big part of my family life. From childhood to this day, I’ve always been infatuated with stand up comedy, comedic television and film. I have a huge affinity to the works of 'Blackadder.' I guess you could say that I might have been a comic in a different life. I also find comedy is the best form of remedy no matter how one is feeling at any point. To have a painting make you laugh, or feel positive in any way, is the best form of reaction I could want to achieve.”
