My work serves a purpose.
My studio is where I navigate current happenings, personal beliefs, and anthropological perspectives, while allowing myself to concentrate on the ones that grip my attention. I toil over aspects of life and society that are concerning, meaningful, or just overwhelming. I want the viewer to have the opportunity to grapple with these ideas as well. My work is the conduit through which I raise awareness and evoke empathy towards people and happenings. As an artist, I want to be the one that speaks, and ultimately, I want my art to declare that I stand for something, that I stood up for someone, and that I allowed their voices to be heard.
