"I intend for my audience to connect their personal experience with that of my subject(s). The human journey is an emotional roller coaster of lessons learned, breaking down barriers and overcoming adversity. We find our purpose through these experiences. With that purpose, we add meaning to the world in which we live. My artwork is a juxtaposition of people (sometimes text) and application of color theory to illustrate subjects that resonate with me personally. I also believe it is an artist’s obligation to highlight matters of social justice and promote social awareness. I want you to feel. I want you to think. Moreover, I want you to engage one another in dialogue. We are in this together."
