I build a hollow home for the shroud of complexities that is the individual. Sentient beings hold an internal interaction within themselves, and external interactions with those they come in contact with. I am inspired by how culture and the struggle for individuality create a dual-life for human beings. There is the outside world and the marks we leave on it, and our own secret place we create for ourselves that allows us to escape from everything. Each human life has its own algorithm with endless inputs and outputs. I covet the individual; my art celebrates the intricacy, style and personality of characters and how inner and outer occurrences affect them as they struggle through the spontaneity that is life.
