"I have always been an artist. I’m inspired by things happening in the world that affect me in the moment. My subject matter and color choices are greatly impacted by my current mind-set. I want the viewer to be able to connect and relate to a feeling.
I always want to focus on my own aesthetics within my artwork. I'll be influenced and inspired by other artists, but I want to always make sure I'll go on my own journey.
I want to continue photographing and creating, no matter what. By pushing your boundaries, you can become a better artist.
I believe that art has a hidden power of truth and beauty."
