“Exploring my emotions. My work can be very intense and takes a lot out of me emotionally. My former professor Joe Maida said it best, “If you constantly pick your wounds before they can heal, you’ll bleed to death.” For now, I like the results of making art this way. Hopefully, I won’t bleed to death anytime soon.

I think as an artist, it is important to know your own intentions. An artist should be free in the process, so I’m against strict boundaries in the thinking and making process of the work. On the other hand, an artist must know ‘Why?’ ‘Why is this work out there?’ ‘What is it for?'”
