CV/Résumé

Artist’s Statement

In my work I pull from pop culture and graphic novels. I hope people see a part of myself through my love of these things . I get inspired by other art and things created by people. I often work in watercolors because I learn something every time I use it. When I finish a piece I often feel it’s the best I’ve done which happens every time, so I continue to grow in my abilities.
