I find myself inspired by day-to-day living: the people and animals I love in times of joy and grief. When the viewer sees my art, my intentions are for them to feel these sentiments that I put into my craft; the complexities of life and humanism make the characters shown in my work unique. The meaning of my artwork isn't always direct but rather a mixture of thoughts & concepts coupled together.
