What is your mission?
My mission is to help people who have faced deep and dark emotions from a life event or experience, find hope and meaning. I do so by creating artwork that addresses their emotions, ideas, mental state of being of that time or event, while adding hidden references to positivity. The goal is to give the viewer’s emotions or memory a home, while allowing the viewer to move past it without shame or disconnect. Instead the artwork’s subject seeks to empower the viewer and use their emotions as a point of departure and strength.
What is your source of inspiration?
My source of inspiration is the pain that humans feel in their lives. I use the negativity from the pain to create works of positivity.
What sizes do you offer?
The paintings listed in the shop come only in the sizes that are written in the description. But commission work can come in custom sizes to fit your personal space and even a few variations in shape as well.
Do you do commissions?
I do commissions on a personal experience, memory, a life event, an idea, emotion, or concept in general. Exact imitation of images or replications of photographs will not be accepted.
