Through my art I seek to understand aspects of human nature. My work highlights the fragile and perilous beauty of ourselves, others and the environment we live in. Through my representation I seek to portray the complexities of humanity, its ugliness and its perfection. It is with all these aspects combined when one can begin to truly understand the human experience. My message is about acceptance, tolerance, peace and education. I use my art to portray the beauty of every individual, as well as the fleeting loveliness of our host planet; how these things should be celebrated and nurtured as opposed to broken. It is my hope that my art can enlighten and incentivize in order to better our human experience.
