Artist Statement
We all communicate through words as words translate into visuals. My visuals are my words.

I believe in drawing not as mere media or style, but rather as the ultimate way to deliver ideas; a combination of self-expression with an essentially bold interaction with the viewer. As a visual artist as well as an idealist, I comprehend almost everything through “minimizing humor.” I play with my ideas as I watch them mock my self; I ultimately simply continue an infinite dialogue on a blank piece of paper.
