How would you describe your art?
Pretty simple. There are enough complex things in the world that I think it can be nice to just view a piece of art that is kind. I never want my art to be complex or demand extra thinking. What you see is what is there and the message lies just beyond that.
What inspires you to create?
The natural world around me. My friends and family. Good and bad decisions. Human interaction—anything and everything inspires me to create. I have no shortage of creative juices.
When did you start making art and why?
I started keeping an active sketch book around middle school and moved into a journal in high school to deal with my ever changing emotions. Upon graduation from high school I started with a 35mm Nikon camera that I found in my closet and began shooting with that. Ever since I found that camera I have only fell further and further down the rabbit hole.
What is the most influential piece of art you have experienced?
I frequented some large city art museums during a stretch of about a year. I would say that. Just experiencing all different forms under the same roof.
What are you trying to communicate with your art?
I think all artists are attempting to communicate loads of messages. With the art that I strive to create. I want it to be pretty boring. I want it to be pretty obvious the message that I create. I care about a positive message. I care about something that looks nice. I care about textures. Something that makes you feel good. Nothing complicated.
