"My art is inspired by the sensitivity, strength and melancholy I observe in the world today. This, as well as the vulnerability I feel in my soul. I tell stories with a spirit of curiosity and disobedience by painting on unconventional, found objects. Often, I start a project by painting only one idea of a narrative. Then, I put the piece in a place where I walk by it every day. When inspiration hits, I add another element, until, having sought the divine through the finite, the piece is a thing with a life of its own."
