I like to think about ideas of existence, humans, the mind, nature, and the universe.
The artwork I create is an attempt to define my existence, as well as my personal experience. I wish to provide meaning in a universe that feels devoid of any real purpose. Using my work as exploration, I want to convey feelings of wonderment, of understanding.
I will continue to wonder, trying to understand.
