Artist Statement:


My mission as an artist is to show a narrative that, at some point in time, we have all experienced or will experience. My work plays with the ideas of joy, beauty, family, and culture. Heavily influenced by the past, I explore warm moral values that have been fading in modern society. I strive to draw out intrigue and beauty of mundane moments and simple aspects of life. At its core, my art is an idealization of the human experience.
