"As an artist, I work to evoke strong emotion from the viewer. I want my audience to feel something when they encounter my pieces. Oftentimes, my art addresses social conditions in exaggerated ways which make them hard to ignore. All of my pieces are inspired by personal experiences that speak to relatable narratives of diversely inclusive consumer audience."
