What inspires your artwork?
The concepts and themes that inspire my work are based around the human experience, our psyches, and some of the intangible aspects we go through in life.
What is your creative process?
When I create art, I start by brainstorming, then I sketch out my ideas, and finally I finalize the image either digitally or physically.

My artistic style is bold, figurative, and abstract.
How do you want your work to make people feel?
I hope my artwork inspires people to feel introspective, curious, and less alone.
If you weren’t an artist what would you be?
If I were not an artist, I would be lost! There's nothing else I can imagine dedicating my life to.
What do you listen to while you work?
I usually like to create in silence. I like having the space to let the thoughts in my mind flow freely.
What do you do when you want to feel creative?
When I feel creative, I like to seize the moment and dive into whatever it is I feel inspired to make.
