Artist Statement: I have been creating artwork ever since I was old enough to hold a crayon in my hands. I have always had a longing to capture the world around me, to show it as I see it through my eyes. Along the way pointing out injustices, humor, and the simple wonderment I experience in my life. I feel my artwork represents what I feel, sense, and think of the world before me.
