Artist Statement

Ever since I was little, I've always been fascinated in drawing the beautiful world I saw around me and in my head. I use art as a form of escapism, and each piece I draw usually contains some part of life I find myself visually attracted to. I enjoy capturing the colors, textures, and themes particularly found in deep sea marine life, nature, themes of romance, and other miscellaneous subjects I stumble upon trying to find things to draw. I am a firm believer that there is beauty everywhere you can look, and I strive for my art to capture the alluring subjects I see around me. Combining these things with my imagination, I illustrate new worlds for people to look at and lose themselves into. I hope that my audiences can be inspired by the worlds I create and relate to some aspect of my work.
