"Over the past several years, I’ve been fascinated by the idea of hidden messages and narrations, which is why research has become a large part of my process. Serious or contrasting allusions usually find their way into my drawings and paintings. Most of my work reference literature, folklore, or the language of flowers in order to emphasize a thought or feeling. I take joy in creating an extra story line that is woven into my pieces."
