The beginning of my art journey started with the death of my first daughter in October 2017. For about two years, I've been suffering from depression circulating the death of my child and my art has been a way for me to cope, and in many ways, allow me to dedicate my feelings of my loss through my artwork. A lot of my artwork centers around the head. Adding my style of visuals to the head of most of my work partially represents my mental state at the time, from either upset and depressed and in deep thought about my child's death, or in acceptance of the situation. For me personally, art has recently helped me overcome a lot of my negative feelings and allowed me to express it without having to talk to anyone. I think it's important for people suffering from any type of mental illness to find a creative outlet to let the world know what they think and feel, and how they see the world. With the amount of positivity I’ve been getting from sharing my artworks, I would highly recommend others put their works out into the world and let people see the beauty of your struggles and how you overcome them.

Artist

I’m a self taught digital collage artist. My introduction into art was through more modern art genres like Vaporwave and the many subgenres attached to it. Then I came across the works of Salvador Dali and Hieronymus Bosch. I discovered I had a very strong attraction to surrealism and have strongly gravitated towards that in trying to cultivate my own unique style of surrealism with vaporwave heavily influenced into my aesthetic. 

A lot of my visuals are personal representations of how I both see and feel the world through my artistic lens. I’ve always had a strong connection to the spiritual aspect of my life and have a view of connectivity through all things created by earth or by people. I have strong beliefs that everything is connected to one another even if we don’t know what it is. I use that perspective in my art, finding things I feel match my thought process and feelings behind every piece.

I feel our minds are unique and complex and we don’t understand fully what it is we see and how our brain processes information. I’ve always genuinely felt the largest component to my art is how I feel our minds are connected and wired to the universe in unique and different ways based on our societies. Our cultures, our religions, and our homes have shaped how we look and perceive the world, and I just do my best to reflect all the beauty from everything into a spiritual and mental melting pot of artistic expression.
