My work is often related to my own interests and are inspired by various emotions and circumstances that I am experiencing in the moment of creation. Artmaking is an escape, a time where I can let the creative take over. Often when I am creating, I enjoy listening to music. I feel that my connection with the various types of music I listen to while making also enhances the work that I am producing. I use art as a tool to convey emotions and messages that words cannot describe.
When I look at my work, I can picture the time and emotions I felt while I was creating and hope that the viewer can find some emotional value as well. I don’t necessarily believe that the viewer should feel the same way about the artwork that I do, rather have their own connections based on their point of view.
I strive for my works to be authentic. I hope to connect my digital work with my love for music as well and transition into artwork and promotions for the music industry.
