Artist statement:
“I’m a dreamer. I believe that what makes you happy, is what makes you strong. My true goal in life is to be happy. Art is something that allows my soul to soar. I have had no formal training in art after high school, and in my life I’ve used art as a mandatory hobby; a way for me to escape and to turn a dark reality into my own colorful story.

My biggest focus in my subject matter has been the human body. I work in the medical field, and I’m fascinated daily by its abilities. I use personal tragedy as the driving force behind my work. I’m heavily influenced by sex, gender, oppression, and anatomy. Deconstructing the human form, allowing the soul to be exposed, and picking away at its central meaning is what drives me.

In my own life I emulate a vintage lifestyle, something that also heavily influences me. Each piece is usually very personal and thought out, making most of my work an important piece of me. Simply put, art means the world to me.”
