Artist Statement

I capture everyday moments between conversations, feelings, book readings, and concepts that had an impact on me, in order to make the experience tangible. I usually begin by drawing in my sketchbook and then digitalizing the images on my iPad. This automatic process evokes a mindfulness that helps me dig deeper into my subconscious and gives me a sense of comfort and understanding. My randomness ends in unexpected results, creating a story filled with satire and humorous content. My goal is to create something that’s emotive and relatable.
