Biography

ARTIST STATEMENT

I strive to be the best that I can be in all aspects of my life and consider myself a free spirit, a curious soul who is always amazed with life and my surroundings. I like to use everyday iconography and objects in my work to document a moment in time, or a particular place or experiences. A personal self-expression of hope, joy, pain, fear, and love.
