"The word 'impressions' is used as both the technique & ultimate goal for each person to have when they come across my work. Whether the piece is easily identifiable or more abstract, it creates a moment where you pause to decipher what is in front of you."
"I draw inspiration through the subjects of nature & human connection. By fusing body movements, botanicals & everyday items, it is my aim to use this creative process as a different way to view our surroundings. With a new understanding, our appreciation of the world around us, can give voice to positive changes that can span across cultures, identities & social reforms."
