As an aspiring artist challenged by verbal communication, my process is frequently informed by a desire to advocate for neurodivergent individuals and all those who struggle to find or share their voices. At the same time, however, much of my work remains intentionally vague and relatively obscure. While many of my pieces tend to indicate unrest amongst banality and imply a potential for an unusual and significant occurrence, those specifics are often dependent upon individual interpretation. I am particularly interested in establishing a dialogue between societal norms, mores, expectations, technological advances, and the more traditional aspects of my artistic practice.
