I strive to create visually imaginative and textural landscapes to touch and explore, provoking thought through the experience of a tangible object. I am fascinated with how the mind creates memories and the correlation of experience, both real and perceived. My imagery often blends satirical narratives drawn in vivid colors, with fragility, grace, and vulnerability. For inspiration, I often rely on fragmented memories of far away places, the confusion of dreams, and the wondrous curiosity I experienced as a child.
