I aim to bring awareness to a concept or cause that doesn’t get the airtime it deserves. The constant stimulation and force-fed nature of our society distracts us from what is truly important in keeping life on Earth alive and well.
Most of the work I make is an emotional response to an injustice I’ve witnessed in everyday life or the media; it raises up a voice that doesn’t always get heard or noticed. My goal is to encourage the viewer to speak up for what they believe in, express themselves, and to stand with others against the bullies that rule much of our planet.
Other parts of my work are therapy—I make art when I’m overwhelmed, heartbroken, confused, angry, or bored in order to process my emotions and as a way of helping others to not feel alone when they’re processing them as well. Making art is how I feel alive.
