“My art practice is driven by a desire for freedom, freedom to act independently, freedom to advocate, freedom to share visually captivating ideas. In a capitalistic world that often feels rigid in acceptance and hinged to exhausting conformity, I choose to create as a method for feeling completely unhinged. In the creative space, I feel an expanse for freedom, which is why I believe that my artwork will always continue to evolve. There are an infinite number of ideas worthy of exploration in our minds, as well as an infinite number of ways to express those incredibly valuable ideas artistically. The limits are few in contrast to the expanse. This principle, of disregarding limits, is one I try to subliminally and overtly impress to the people in my life. Painting and visual arts happen to be ways I choose to express ideas.”
