Artist Statement


My work is an exploration of my daydreams, subconscious feelings, and the life force that connects us all. Through balanced compositions, immersive detailing, and intentional color palettes, I pay homage to the brilliance of nature, exploring the healing power of visuals.

I began creating art daily in high school as a coping mechanism for anxiety and depression, and soon dedicated my practice to transmuting pain into beauty. I funnel my appreciation of music into balanced, dream-like scapes containing imagery based on lyrics from my favorite albums, and I often add extra pairs of eyes to portraits and butterflies/moths to represent the expansion of perspective; going beyond what one knows in order to see things a different way. I am committed to continual growth; adjusting mindsets that are no longer serving me, taking chances that scare me, and doing more than I believe myself to be capable of every day. I draw beings, things, and feelings that make me especially excited about being alive.
