"Art helps me appreciate life, my soul, my body, and grants deeper consciousness of all the beauty that nature holds. Everything in and
out of my existence is therefore illuminated by my art practice."

ARTIST STATEMENT

Growing up I was timid and art was my form of expression. Sketching figures eventually led me to digital art, where I was able to create entire worlds from my imagination through an expansive digital platform.

My artwork includes perspectives from outer space, minimalism, and theories of quantum physics which comes together to help translate my inner vision to outer reality and has also inspired me to push my ideas for digital art even further. I use a variety of techniques ranging from photoshop manipulation to mixing different medias. My goal is to spark the viewer’s imagination in the hope that they will experience a transcendence beyond the limitations of the body, transporting them to a place of mental freedom and greater understanding of the universe surrounding them.

Art helps me appreciate life, my soul, my body, and grants deeper consciousness of all the beauty that nature holds. Everything in and out of my existence is therefore illuminated by my art practice.
