My work is about cellphone addiction and technology. It engages with this topic by illustrating specific relationships people have with each other and any consequence that may arise with technology. I love the process of painting and drawing people in a representational manner with the hopes of capturing timely moments in its unadulterated state. Cellphone use and any interrelation with life, society, or the environment is that catalyst and I continue to investigate this subject and its validity through compositions in my work.
