I strive to create visually imaginative and textural landscapes to touch and explore, provoking thought through the experience of a tangible object. I am fascinated with how the mind creates memories and the juxtaposition of experience, both real and perceived. For inspiration, I often rely on the positive and negative influences that I experience daily, confusion of dreams and memories, and the wondrous curiosity I experienced as a child. I aim to instill this same nostalgic and inquisitive imagination in others as they observe my work. My imagery often blends satirical narratives drawn in vivid colors, with fragility, grace, and vulnerability.
