Artist Statement

I do my work to inspire people. I want to achieve greatness in the world someday and I believe that in order to do so a starting point is required. My starting point comes in the form of art, I portray my story through my art, I raise awareness through my art and I will change the world through my art. My goal is to inspire people to find something they’re truly passionate about and share their passion with the world. I firmly believe that everybody in life has a purpose, a purpose to share their knowledge with one another, a purpose to discover different passions, or a purpose to just sharing their story and through my art, I hope to inspire people to do the same and share a part of their world.

When it comes to making decisions in the course of my work, I plan out the story I plan to tell before making it permanent with paint or whichever medium I plan to use. I am usually inspired by my own stories and passions however sometimes I am inspired to tell the story of someone else. Based on the story I want to tell or the passion I want to illustrate, I search for a theme that would be a suitable fit. After finding the overall theme, I imagine the different ways I could portray it, then I sketch out my top three ideas and then decide which techniques I want to use. Lastly, after analyzing or planning out the three ideas, one usually fits the criteria of the overall theme and story, and then I commence on a new journey!

Most of my current work revolves around my personal stories and emotions. In all of my last pieces I am exploring the end of a chapter in life, graduating high school and leaving my hometown and the beginning of a new chapter, starting college and settling in a new and completely different place. Through my work I am attempting to work with new mediums such as photography and film, as well as challenging myself to take risks and work outside of the invisible lines of my comfort zone.
