My original concepts are representational scenes portraying a character having a direct interaction with light.
Their story is grounded in the way that I want to see all people.
That every single one of us, regardless who we are, what we’ve done, or what we’re about, deserves empathy, because being alive is hard to do.
Daily we all wake and must confront life's demands. Health is never assured. Security is never assured. Mistakes are assured. Temptation awaits. The wrong path threatens us at every turn.
Poverty drains our humanity but somehow wealth does not restore us.
We inwardly struggle... Tradition against Progress, Community against Individuality, Stability against Passion, Security against Freedom.
I recognize how difficult it is to be alive.
Using our profound connection with light, I tell a story of empathy in a single moment. Our fascination, our yearning, and our hope in light provide me with the foundation for my original concepts.
