In my pursuit of creativity, my passions derive from humanity and the elegant, yet simplicity that nature and creatures alike possess. My colors and use of different mediums comes from the way I view the world around me and the everyday little interactions. When looking at the figure I see the blues, greens, and purple undertones of breathing flesh. Nature and humanity intrigue me and the connections of both are fascinating. This duality of humanity intertwined in the fabric of the natural world and the life we find all around us is not far removed from one another. I find humanity is not apart from nature but still very much living within it and there is beauty in both. The natural world, animals, plants, and humanity all collectively breathing in unison not apart but together.
