Artist Statement

“I like to manipulate the familiarity of iconic characters to give my art a nostalgic feeling. At the same time, twist the suggestive narrative to a visceral topic, to create a mature conversational piece. My work is influenced by everyday life, history, and fashion. I find inspiration through nature and my muse. For me, art is about the vibe. My goal for every piece is to provoke thought and positivity. I create to speak a visual language of love and silent protest.”
