I am an artist in its all-encompassing meaning and have been so my whole life. I paint and talk about my experiences and thrive on topics that make me feel uncomfortable. Subject matters vary from mental health and sexuality to daily comedy, awkwardness and candid moments. I've a natural tendency to be drawn to challenges and discomfort in order to grow. I reject mediocrity and instead of shying away from challenges, I celebrate discomfort not only for my own sake but for others as well.
I enjoy the fact that people are not going to feel nor think exactly the same about my work as I do. The beauty and frustration of art lie in the same thing–it is entirely subjective and open to interpretation. After I put it out, it lives on it’s own and in everyone’s mind differently, yet I’ve shared a human experience that will always be somewhat recognisable to the viewer. Knowing that our bizarre and troubling experiences are essentially the same, relieves taboos of the human experience and brings us closer to each other and ourselves.
