ARTIST STATEMENT My art is my voice, a powerful interpretation of my deepest thoughts, hidden emotions, and ideas. The images I create are from experience and a need to connect to the world in my language as an artist, I work hard to develop my skill and love for art, which speaks both to me and others about the beauty of my envelopment in it. My primary aim in making portraits is to showcase a living being without creating a hyper-realistic piece.
