With my art I aim to create an impression, a lasting reflection of an abstract emotion in the viewer, a reflection on their place in the universe. I do this by surrounding the viewer in the art, engulfing them in the medium such as wallpaper, murals, and engrossing comics. I am interested in exploring the line between reality and fiction; to create my own interpretation of where that line is. My artworks are ultimately questions to viewers about their own perceptions on modern life, the human condition, and an active study of my own personal situation.
