As a young artist growing up in a poor rural community, I was witness to a lot of hardship and sadness but in that sadness you could always find moments of joy. As an adult artist I try to take those emotions of frustration, sadness, and anxiety and transform them into wonder, joy, and warmth. Contrary to conventional rules of artistry, I do not have one particular style. Instead I explore a variety of techniques, mediums, and styles to create an ever evolving aesthetic.
