Artist Statement

Exploration, creativity, and imagination. These concepts are present in my work as I pursue self-discovery through my artistic endeavours. With every piece of art I produce, I want to keep learning and exploring new ideas. While I have the chance to fully immerse myself in my own creative process, wherever it leads me, I want to learn as much as I can.
