About the artist:

“I want to create a path to the universal language that connects us.

A visual language that is unspoken.
Communication, I thought, had never been my forte. Yet, all the while, I was screaming in an abstract way to the world. My art is my personal way to convey my trauma without conflict or boundaries. It’s a way of dealing with my past.

It takes time to fully see the details in life and recognize feelings. I want people to see and to realize and to feel.
You never forget how someone made you feel.

My work first starts with photography. I take photos of things that are of interest to me. Textures, patterns, mess, oddities, and nature. I then take those photographs and digitally manipulate them on my tablet. I layer, colour, and play with different blend modes. After I feel like the piece is ready (the readiness can take anywhere from a day to a few weeks) the files are sent off to the printers to print them on high-quality, shatter-proof acrylic sheets. They are then cut into their respective shapes. Each piece is one of a kind.”
