In the past my work has aimed to please others rather than myself. I had even adopted the notion that great art meant mastering a single medium like grand perfect paintings and drawings. After an uninspiring year studying 3D animation and design, I realized this was not the case, so I took a break. But the desire to make art that made me happy drew me back, leading to a more diverse creative journey. Returning to school led me to explore my artistic practice, as well as themes like ritual, and the connection between the body and nature, but always with a slightly clownish theatrical and fun approach. My new goal is to create art that challenges me and nurtures joy in myself before anyone else. I aim to connect with my audience in a personal and entertaining way, and in the future, I want to explore themes like nature, the body, and connecting and reconnecting.
