About me

I do not explore a specific theme throughout my paintings; my practice is more of an exploration of the journey took in finding my identity as an artist. Before this point, I had seen myself as an experimental artist who was a jack of all trades, so when it came to exploring concepts, I did not know what to do or what to use because I had such a broad array of options to choose from. However, I was able to accomplish this by subtracting the audience and romanticism with the piece -with the romanticism being the act of me, the artist, falling in love with a particularly concept then creating an impulsive, emotional response through my work. The thing that caught my attention about adopting this method was not the process but the fact that I adopted this method subconsciously.
