My art focuses on following one’s dreams and finding beauty in our struggles. I am truly grateful for every experience I have had in my life, especially the harder times, because they have had the most profound impact on me. It seems to be through the most turbulent points in our life we learn to find peace. Through the scarcest times, we learn truly abundant life is. Through our weakness, we find great strengths. It is the human condition to adapt and create what we need for ourselves when it is lacking from our own environment. It is our own initiative and devotion to dedicate ourselves to apply that to find out how each of us, in our own way, can make the world a better place than when we entered it. The focus of my art is to serve that purpose.
Symbolism in my work is used to share the messages I find most meaningful. The flying fish represent freedom to be different and follow a new path. The figures merging with the environment is to bring light to our connection to everything around us, as well as aligning with our life purpose. Transitions between portrait, nature, and surreal elements show how everything if life transforms into something new. For instance our experience of loss shifts into emotional growth and paces way for new and beautiful things to enter our lives. This is to also reflect that all here is temporary and there is much more beyond this.
